After the 2009 Vogalonga, my family and I made our exit
on one of these behemoths.
Since then I've told a lot of people about the experience;
big surprise, a lot of them were planning to cruise out of Venice
and asked me
"What will I see from the cruise ship?"
Many of the images I shot from the top deck are featured in posts at the end of this piece, and here are a few more.
The bridge at the Rio di San Giuseppe.
The "Molo" in front of the Palazzo Ducale.
Funny thing about shooting pictures from a huge ship:
everybody is looking, smiling and waving.
Canale di S. Elena.
Having the right lens and keeping people from stepping in front of the camera are important, but the high vantage point gives some great photo opportunities.
Here are some previous posts with photos from the same journey out of Venice:
