As I was prepping a travel portfolio for a future collection, I came across this:

venice, italy, world travel, travel photography

This photo is one of my favorite moments from our travels in Venice. It was cold, rainy, dark, damp and completely romantic! I always carry a few pieces of gear everywhere I go. I always have them ready, just in case the perfect journalistic moment should arise or if  an impromptu self-portrait be inspired. On this day in Venice, I slapped a warm filter onto the end of my flash, in order to bring out the warm lighting that spilled out from the shops. I then strapped the flash into the tip-top of our umbrella, set-up tripod, timer and Voilá… It’s now one of my favorite travel photos of us. In fact, it instantly takes me back, forcing me to anxiously ask- “where the Hell are we going next?!”
