I took Nikki to Padova this morning. She’s too long (in focal length, that is) for architecture shots, so I decided to do a little street shooting. Most of the streets in the historical section of Padova are lined by portici (arcades) and there are many wonderful opportunities for shots with superb light and shadow. Being exquisitely sharp and fast to manually focus, Nikki excels in this environment. These are the shots I like best so far.
