Well, the leaning tower of Pisa may be the be known worldwide as "the" leaning tower but it is not the only one. There are many others, of course and this one is in Venice in the canal parallel to the one where the Ponte dei sospiri or the Bridge of Sighs. It is not as imposing as the Pisan tower but it stands out nevertheless.

A good use of the 12-24 mm lens. Hard to use without getting ridiculously distorted images that appear to fall on your head. It's a neat lens but it's range makes it not very useful as a travel lens as it;s weight to usefulness ratio is small. With patient it can yield interesting shots.

These shots reveal the beauty of the garden below our hotel in Siena. We had to pass through it to get to our car. The Palazzo Ravizzo was the wonderful hotel. The lens was the Sigma 12-24 F3.5-5.6 EX. I hope it were possible to convey the wonderful fragrance in the air.
