    • Some European cities have strict rules against the use of a tripod, fines and fees. So, you learn to brace against anything solid, this from a bench

    • It was out of neccesity – the No-Tripod Police busted us twice. So this was done by firmly bracing the camera on a level piece of marble and bracketing away as carefully as possible. In Rome, if you shoot off a Tri-Pod is is considered “Art Photography” for which you need to apply for and pay a fee (several hendred Euros).

      thanks for the kind comments!
