The story behind the image

We had never been to Pisa to see what must probably be one of the most photographed locations in the world: The Leaning Tower of Pisa. When we finally came around in 2012, it was very hot which probably was the reason for the relatively few visitors on the site. The place certainly is beautiful, and if you’ve got a chance, please plan the time for a visit.

I took this photo with our Ricoh CX1, a good point-and-shoot camera. This photo is almost straight out of the camera. I still find it amazing that a relatively cheap camera can produce such high quality photos. Needless to say, you’ll discover flaws when you watch it at 100%, especially the visible chromatic errors in the top left corner. But then again, who would want to print an oversized poster from that? Right, that’s why there are stock photo agencies. So, all good for me, and this is what counts (for me).
