Canon 24mm f/3.5L TSE at f/4, 1/200, iso 200. Venice, Italy. Something a little different for today. This was one of my first experiments with tilt and shift.

I decided to mine my Venice archives again, and found various angles on the lamps in the Piazza San Marco. This first composition was my favorite, but here are two other perspectives.

chess

Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens at f/4. A few days ago, I took a look at our old beat-up chess set and said to Mike that I'd like to get a new one. He looked shocked at the suggestion. I couldn't understand why, until he explained that he had played with this set since he was a kid, and that it belonged to his grandfather before that. Then, I suddenly grew very fond of the old, scratched-up board. It's funny how an old thing can suddenly turn into treasure when it has a history attached to it. I suppose if we hang on to our stuff, no matter how worn, ugly, or outdated, our grandkids will think it's awesome and retro some day.
