Hi, I’m Bruno! As a physician lucky enough to be born and living in Venice, I enjoy photography as my favorite hobby. I love both the theoretical and technical aspects that lie behind any click of the shutter as much as the creative, artistic process that bring to life the final result any photographer chases after: the picture.

At the beginning I was loving photography for itself but, as time passed, photography made me love things I was not even interested in before. Nature, art, architecture, street life have all started meaning so much more to me behind my lens. After buying my first digital reflex I was also travelling more and more, as photography has been the powerful driving force behind a new will to discover.

I started this blog to share my photographic experiences while wandering around the most exciting places. I also try to collect and share my thoughts about pictures as I think pictures are made of more than just colours and shapes. Beneath pictures there are ideas, and I will try to share my ideas too.

So, thank you so much for visiting my blog… any hints or comments will be appreciated!

    However you got a lot better pictures than mine πŸ˜›

    1. I have started some blog with the same intention to share my experience with just my friends and relatives, but it’s nice to discover other people partecipate to our adventures in the process, and I really enjoyed seeing my city through your pictures! πŸ˜‰ Hope you have a lot of fun with your travels and, of course, with blogging too! πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you Lynne. I have found your blog being really inspiring, I love how direct and acute your street photography is! Hope to learn something looking at your pictures..

  4. Accipicchia Bruno – Madhu thinks your photos are stunning ? I’m in ! – A Noisy Pilgrim’s opinion is worth following. πŸ™‚

  5. Stunning shots of cities I love. Nice touch detailing information about the shot. Do use use HDR in your edit process and what software do you use most often.

    1. Thanks vannillarock! I used to take more pictures and merge them with an HDR software like Photomatix, but often I wasn’t so thrilled with the unnutural effect. Now I use just Light room! Thank you for dropping by! πŸ˜‰

  6. hello Bruno–thank you for the like of my ‘room.’ not only are your photos stunning, but I really enjoy the captions under them. I’m a follower! thank you.

  7. Hi Bruno…Thanks for the visit and follow. We obviously love the same things. Look forward to following you in the coming months as you visit two of the most iconic cities in Europe. Best wishes…Andrew

    1. Thanks! Waking up really early in the morning helps a lot πŸ˜‰ the side effect is that I usually sleep during the day when I am on vacation.. πŸ˜‰

  8. Bruno, your photos are absolutely magical! I love that you share tips about how to best capture the scenes and what you used to do so. I’m honored that you have chosen to follow my rather new foray into photoblogging and beginning efforts on the road to improving my photographic skills. Following your blog will be a delight!

  9. And forgive me for not having said so in my first comment: I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful trail of likes you have left on my posts!

  10. Hello Bruno,

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog πŸ™‚

    Browsing through your posts was a real treat and really enjoyed the images.

    Let me check them out one by one.

    Thanks a lot for sharing and have a great time πŸ™‚

  11. hi bruno! thank you so much for visiting blog and encouraging me with your interest! your photos are stunning, and i look forward to some joint photographic exploration! be happy!

  12. Hi Bruno, I’ve never been to Venice or Berlin, so I’ll follow your blog with great pleasure. Your photos are fantastic.
    Cheers from Sydney, Australia. πŸ™‚ Irina

  13. Bruno, your photos are stunning – and I agree with you on the early mornings. I manage that…sometimes. I know it’s rewarding. Thank you for the follow – I will gladly follow you back. I love Venice but haven’t been there using a camera…I think I’ll have to go back.

  14. Hi Bruno, really like your photos and thoughts!! thank you for your “likes” on mine … that’s how I found you of course!! (your blog has inspired me to “go black” on mine, after considering it for a long time … imitation is supposed to be the sincerest form of flattery, so i hope you don’t mind!!)

  15. Hi there Bruno, thanks for stopping by my blog. I presumed straight away on seeing your site`s name that you might have some images from the film festivals given that you `liked` a post of mine about a Japanese film. Do you shoot pictures from these two great film festivals?

  16. Hi Bruno,

    I just realised I made an error when compiling my nominees for the Liebster Award yesterday. I love your photos and had always intended to include your blog, but somehow it got missed out, thanks to the mess of answers, questions and nominees in my head.

    That said, I’ve now corrected my initial oversight, and hope you’ll still accept my belated nomination… http://jaspasjourney.wordpress.com/2014/08/17/liebster-award/

  17. Hi Bruno

    I am so glad you visited my blog as it led me to your beautiful world. You have such stunning photos in the blog. I am definitely visiting you back.


  18. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by and looking at my blog! If you have any suggestions, requests or travel questions just let me know! I’m on my way over to your blog to see what you are up to! Enjoy blogging! CadyLuckLeedy

  19. Love the simple format of your posts. The information you add alongside spectacular shots creates an intriguing blend of groundedness with sensory stimulus. Appreciate you sharing.

    1. Hi 2far2shout! Cadiz is not so far to reach but actually I have never been there. Are you planning to visit it or do you have any suggestion about what to photograph there? It would be very welcome and maybe of inspiration for a next trip! πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Karen, I will do it! I really enjoing taking pictures and blogging and I’m really happy when I read such beautiful comments like yours! You have a great travel blog, I enjoyed every post on your pages. I wish you many happy travels! πŸ™‚ ciao!

  20. Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking the post. I very much like what you’re doing with this blog. Not to mention the awesome pictures πŸ™‚ I look forward to reading/ seeing some more on here. Have a wonderful weekend.

  21. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike πŸ™‚

    Been away for a while, but now I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my β€˜point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…


    1. Thanks Andrew! I have seen you already have a well packed Lowepro backpack on your way, and I agree with your choice of light cameras (and envy you a bit too!). Of course I use my tripod mostly during the blue hour but I like to have it with me also in the daylight together with my big stopper.. you know, Venice can get so crowded that you could desire to make people fade away with a longer exposure. So my suggestion is: carry it always with you if it doesn’t weight too much, especially if you are going for a day trip to Burano, as you are planning. But leave it hung to your backpack if you are in too crowded places like the fish market or Rialto’s bridge during rush hours! Have fun πŸ˜‰

      1. Thanks for the advice, Bruno. I’m still wavering on the 14mm prime. I thought it might be good indoors as it is relatively fast (F2.8). The 10-24 is excellent but slower glass. I am going to pack a small Domke bag too so I don’t have to carry the Lowepro pack all the time. Wave to us if you see a lost gweilo and his Chinese wife in Venice.

  22. Hello Bruno, Thanks for dropping by and liking my post on Italy πŸ™‚ I would love to visit Venice again, as I had mentioned, not in August or with kids! But it truly was a beautiful city. I really enjoyed looking at your photos, really beautiful!

    1. Ciao Samiya, thank you for stopping by and for your beautiful comments! πŸ™‚ I know how overcrowded Venice is and in the peak season a visit could be really stressful. In summer I’m the first who try to escape St. Mark’s Square and the surroundings, even making my way longer. I wish you could visit Venice and Italy again soon, my favourite periods are early Spring, with its clear skies, or October-November, with a charming fog! πŸ™‚

      1. Hi Brubio, I can so imagine it would be absolutely stunning other times of the year. I had travelled to Rome in October and Amalfi coast in April and really enjoyed those periods without masses of people! can’t blame everyone for wanting to experience such a beautiful country though πŸ™‚

  23. Well that’s the best part about going into a field we love and enjoy… the passion just brings everything to a sense of peace, harmony, and love… focusing on those things in our everyday lives will continue to bring them around more often!!!

    1. Hi Ajith! Venice is waiting for you, I hope you could come back soon. I really like your pics and I look forward to seeing your future posts! Ciao! πŸ™‚

  24. Thank you for the likes on my photos. They prompted me to visit your blog and you’ll see I’ve been on a liking spree! Your photos are wonderful and capture the essence of each scene. I look forward to your future posts πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Terry, thank you for stopping by and for your liking spree! I’m also looking forward to your future posts, I’am one of your followers! πŸ™‚ Ciao!

  25. Hello, Bruno! Thank you so much for “liking” my photo! Given how magnificent your work is, it is quite flattering. πŸ™‚ I am eager to see more of your work now! All my best.

  26. Entiendo que has nacido y vives en Venecia, Β‘es nuestra ciudad especial! y cada aΓ±o intentamos visitarla unos pocos dΓ­as.
    Me gustan mucho tus fotos.

    Un saludo.

    1. Hola! Sì, has entendido muy bien, he nacido en Venecia, y ahora vivo y trabajo aqui. Es de verdad un plazer para mi que te gusten mis fotos!
      He leido con mucho gusto tus entradas sobre Venecia! Me pareciΓ³ muy gracioso lo que escribiste sobre la playa del Lido “llena de feas casetas rectangulares en hileras”. Es verdad que son feas, pero no te puedes ni imaginar cuΓ‘nto les encanten a los venecianos, que se gastan cada verano miles de euros para alquilar una! πŸ˜‰
      Espero que puedas volver pronto a Venecia y gozar de su magia!
      Un saludo!

  27. Hi Bruno, I just wanted to tell you I thought every one of your photos was gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!
    I appreciate it that you liked one of mine. πŸ™‚

  28. Thanks for liking my pictures. Love yours. Being a physician how you find to pursue your hobby so seriously? Have a Gr8 clicking day everyday. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Rekha, thanks for stopping by! Actually, finding the time can be tricky, but luckily enough I love sunrises, and most of the days I am not busy at 5 am.. it’s just the willpower that lacks sometimes so early in the day! πŸ˜‰

  29. Bruno, your work is a pleasure to see. Thanks so much for following Oh, the Places We See, for now we have met and had the pleasure of exchanging ideas. You make me want to return to Venice, for sure. Best wishes for continued great shots and good health to continue all you want to do. Thanks again for following. http;//ohtheplaceswesee.com

    1. September is a great month to visit Venice, still warm air and not too crowded. Hope you find some further hint on my blog to enjoy this city and feel free to ask me any questions! πŸ™‚

  30. ‘Uau’! (that’s how you write ‘wow’ in Italian, isn’t it?) πŸ™‚ What beautiful pictures! I will definitely be spending more time perusing your beautiful photos of one of my very favourite cities in the world. Thank you for checking out my first post on your amazing city – you are so lucky to live in Venice!

  31. Ciao! Thanks for visiting my blog, I love your work! I cannot wait for my first visit to Italy next week and photograph some of the beautiful country myself πŸ™‚

  32. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a ‘like’. Yours is filled with excellent photogaphy. I had to finally stop pushing the like buttton – everything is wonderful!

  33. Hi Bruno, That’s for stopping by my blog which is why I am here. Wonderful pictures and explanations. You are the first person I’ve seen that adds GPS to their shots. Very cool. Thanks~Julia

  34. Bruno, Grazie per guardare il mio blog. Fra poco torneremo a casa nostra in Val di Non. Mia moglie ed io sono anche fotografi con numerosi contributi alla Panoramio (Google Earth). Le tue foto sono supremo! Complimenti!

  35. Hi Bruno – You should be so proud of your ability its incredible! I am in awe… So looking forward to seeing more and more from you – I would say check our blog out but my photography just seems very ameuteur compared to yours… I did visit Venice a few weeks back though πŸ™‚

  36. Love your photography Bruno and thanks for liking my “Counting it pure joy in Portrush” blogpost. Not sure if you are living in Ireland but if you are “A Thousand Welcomes.” I hope you enjoy your stay here.
