Piazza San Marco
Standing in the arch reading the light meter of his Contaflex is my father Stan, then Lecturer in Architecture at the University of Queensland. This was his first visit to Europe, and a chance to see buildings he had read about in Sir Bannister Fletcher's History of architecture.
I took this picture with my little Olympus Pen camera. Then we walked across the square and into the basilica, full of rich reverberations. Under one of the domes a man was photographing mosaics with a Linhof Technika 70. I decided I wanted a bigger camera. And I started to think it might be OK to be an architect.
