After a rainy day I often take my camera and I take a walk on the streets/squares of my city: I like to take photos of reflections from puddles. To achieve a good result I use a wide angle lensand I put the camera at ground level ( better if the camera has a tilting display )… but it’s not enough! To obtain a different picture ( from other millions of the same type ) we need some fantasy : in my example a friend that helped me to have a drop in the puddle….
With a “little” detail
I think that the second one is better…do you agree?
Note: Amphitheater Square in the city of Lucca, Italy
When I go to shoot I always have an idea on which to work .. a story to tell, otherwise the photos do not come to me. Here I liked the reflection of the asphalt on the water that, thanks to the stones, it looks like a starry sky. So, as my usual, take the photo and wait..wait..wait as long as a person does not stop in the right place!. An hour or more of waiting and patience mixed with a little fantasy.
I saw a big puddle in the courtyard of the church ( St. Michael in Lucca )…so I was choosing the right way to do the photos when a pigeon came just in the right place. Lucky! This picture has been chosen by National Geographic and it on sale in it’s stock site.
