2014 Photography Challenge- A Moment in Time (4:00 p.m.)

Okay. Remember how sometimes throughout this challenge I've feared for my life (like from 2:00 a.m. - 5:00 a.m.)? Well. 4:00 p.m. presented a whole new life-threatening challenge in order for my photo to be lined up almost exactly like the one I took at 4:00 a.m.- cars and buses!

At 4:00 a.m., I didn't have to worry about competing with anyone in the street because, well, no one was out and about. I should have thought about my 4:00 p.m. self when taking this photo, because my biggest challenge was running out in traffic (literally) to take my photo as best I could.

For my p.m. excursions I need to study my a.m. photos to try and match them up perfectly (hello Type A!). I now know this requires me to get to my photo location a little early so I can try to set the stage. Luckily I think this will be as dangerous as it gets. I don't think any more photos require me to play in traffic.

I did the very best I could to snap this p.m. photo as closely to the a.m. photo, but at a certain point I realized I valued my life more than the accuracy of the two photos. Even still, you'll see from the side by side photo that I did a pretty good job.

As usual, it's busy and filled with lots of interesting characters in Venice at this time of the day and year.

And here is the 4:00 a.m. and p.m. side by side (click to enlarge):

5 things I noticed between the two photos:
  • While not as many cars driving at 4:00 a.m., there are nearly as many cars parked at 4:00 p.m. as there were at 4:00 p.m.
  • The VENICE sign looks better all lit up at night! 
  • There seemed to be more beach activity going on at 4:00 a.m. than at 4:00 p.m.. I can't remember what exactly was set up at 4:00 a.m., but it looks more fun compared to 4:00 p.m.
  • There are lots of flags flying around this part of Venice that you never saw at 4:00 a.m.
  • And finally, the addition of people, in this photo at least, brings the photo to life more than what I experienced at 4:00 a.m.
