This is how it looks when you photograph the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta in the moment a wave washes over your camera and the lens is half submerged.
Now if this wasn’t a real tabloid teaser. But if you continued reading what happened to my E-M1X once it took a dive in the Golfo Dei Poeti on the Ligurian coast, I have to disappoint you. For this series I have been using my old little Olympus Tough TG-4 action cam, which is the perfect piece of gear to go swimming with.
The Significant Other and myself have transferred ourselves to Genoa for a couple of days, to see old friends and enjoy the bustling and colorful life in our former hometown. With the heat and humidity in the city becoming a bit too much, we decided to heat to nearby Camogli for a refreshing dip into crystal clear water on this beautiful pebbled beach directly in front of the arena of historic, colorful houses of this historic little seafarers town.
Camogli is our favorite spot when going to a beach near Genoa, and I can’t get enough of the reflections of the colorful buildings in the water. The water surface was smooth enough to capture the liquified buildings by holding the lens directly above the waterline when pressing the shutter.
Depending on the movement of the water you get totally different shapes of liquid houses.
I hope you liked this little collection of liquid houses. Today we will brace the heat and head into Genoa’s Centro Storico and to the old harbor, perfect places for some shopping and street shooting.

Wish you a great Tuesday!
