I took this photo on my DSLR Canon t5i with an 18-55 mm lens. I used the “Manual” setting, manual focus, and an ISO of 100. I adjusted the exposure (brightness, highlights, shadows, contrast) with PicMonkey, an online photo editing site. My sister and I found a quiet location with one of the best views of Venice; a rare moment of quiet and peace in such a bustling, touristy destination. I wanted to capture this moment to relay that even in the busiest of tourist locations, there are still areas of seemingly undiscovered solidarity.
This photo was taken in Venice, Italy on August 4th, 2018 at approximately 3:00 pm. The subject of the photo is on a bench in Giardini Pubblici at the southern end of the island of Venice. As it is about a 20-30 minute walk from St. Marks square, there were no tourists at the park aside from myself and my sister. In my opinion, this park had one of the best views overlooking Venice, and I was pleasantly surprised with how few people were there.
I am 21 years old from St. Paul, MN, and have a passion for writing, travel, unicycling, and photography. I aspire to become a successful freelance writer, contributing my knowledge of travel and psychology with others. Before the age of 20, I traveled and backpacked to over 10 different countries, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. I have visited Iceland, Perú, Chile, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Mexico, and Canada.
