Same path, different eyes

I could walk the same street all the time, but things can look very different according to what camera I am using to take photos.

The Statue of Peace, located on the North side of Piazza Liberta, by the sculptor Giovan Battista Comolli, designed by Valentino Presani. This statue was actually being built by Napoleon, on a pyramidal base, in the square of Campoformido (a small town nearby) in memory of the 1797 Peace Treaty. It was abandoned in a courtyard in Campoformido until 1819, when Francis I of Austria made a gift to the city of Udine and solemn ceremony was put in place where it is today.

If I go out with no camera I always have the iPhone which takes remarkable good quality photos, normally however, I carry the Leica D-Lux 6. Small and handy, it is always on the ready.

Reluctantly, I take the Canon D50, even though it is my favorite. It is heavy and bulky. I have a good number of lenses to play with also. When I do, I come back always happy with the images.

The good part is that the same street, piazza, corner, or building can look totally different depending on the camera. But also depending on the weather of course, the time of the day, and the season.

I lived the most part of my life in Washington DC, now in Italy getting to know again my country. Plenty of surprises, for good and bad, and lots of nostalgia for DC.
