You can buy pearls on Rialto Bridge

We had a great time, while shooting photos from the Rialto Bridge in Venice. People were happy, and a band played music. The bridge itself is a master piece of architecture, and no wonder it attracts people.--Jacob Surlandwww.caughtinpixels.comArt sale as limited prints.

Nice Pearl Shop on top of the Rialto Bridge in Venice.

We didn’t buy any pearls when we were on Rialto Bridge. We were far too busy shooting photos. Half the bridge was under reconstruction, but we still managed to get some great shots. One of the things I like, about shooting in Italy at famous locations, is that there usually is a band playing some music. People are in general friendly and happy, and moving around with selfie sticks, trying to shoot themselves with their loved ones. I wouldn’t dare to put any of my cameras on a selfie stick though!

These are a couple of my favorites from same evening:
The view from Rialto Bridge is world famous, and not without reason. It is stunning. I tried to capture a slightly different scene, than the classic Canal-Grande seen-from-the-Rialto-Bridge photo (though I shot that one too). I love that Mahony taxi boat in front of Hotel Rialto, and that restaurant with the golden light.Read the full blog post here: SurlandPhoto by Jacob Surland, Licensed creative commons non-commercial v4.0.

Crossing the Rialto Bridge is a must do experience when visiting Venice. And if you have the option to plan it, try to do it at sunset. The houses along Canal Grande look just awesome with the lights and colors. Stay and watch the traffic for a while. Gondolas, Varporettos, taxi boats, and ordinary people cruising in their small speed boats. It's a very busy area. Photo by: Jacob Surland,
