On the Dock

On the Dock

Illuminated by just two street lamps, it was nearly pitch black out the night I took this image in Venice. I'd enjoyed a great Italian dinner, and had spent the next few hours exploding the area around S.t Marks square when I walked out to the water from and the docks used by the gondolas. I found this young couple sitting at the end of the dock, deep in conversation, and captured this frame using my medium format camera. Given how dark it was, I shot with the aperture wide open and focused on the couple; this resulted in the closer parts of the dock being slightly out of focus, which I really like. Mamiya 7ii, 65mm Wide Angle lens, Ilford HP5+ 400 film.
