I was sitting around watching the Fellini movie, "La Dolce Vita" and it reminded me of this photograph...

.... It was taken on a vaporetto in Venice on a cold day in April of 1985. I paused the movie and headed out to the office to see if I could find the slide. I did.


I was too lazy to scan it so I set up my copy stand and shot a copy with the a6300, using a Nikon 55mm macro lens with an adapter. I used a Fotodiox LED as a light box.

This shot was taken with a 35mm Minox camera. 35mm lens. f2.8. Kodachrome 64. Amazing what was possible with such "primitive" equipment....

comments most  welcome.

Love this shot! So many different and interesting expressions. The guy with the trench coat is wonderful. The guy to the right looks bemused. The young lady looks a bit startled. IMO, the mark of a good street shot is an image that takes more than a glance to reveal all of its treasures.
