Early sunlight beginning to touch this canal. I have software, The Photographer's Ephemeris, that shows on a satellite map the direction of the sun and length of shadows for any place and time on earth (including future dates). It cost about $12 in the apps store.

I was walking on the street in Regensberg, Germany, looked down this passageway and saw the costumed man walking right to left. I readied my camera, & as luck would have it, just seconds later he moved left to right and I captured this image. Lucky, yes, but you've got to be ready!
Taken from the back of a water taxi going from Venice airport to near my hotel.
Near the Cavalletto Hotel
