Digital contact sheet #2 : Chasing the captain

This second “digital contact sheet” illustrates the spirit of the chase in street photography. As I was shooting by San Marco Plaza in Venice, a boat captain suddenly rushed past me. I immediately thought it would be a great picture opportunity, especially since there were gondolas in the background. Here started the chase for a couple of minutes. I did find it quite challenging to get a good composition due to the various planes and levels in the background. Unsatisfied, I finally walked to the captain and asked if I could take a portrait.
