Dropped gelato in Venice Italy

Piece description from the artist

Walking around the perimeter of Piazza San Marco in Venice Italy, I spotted this dropped scoop of gelato. It was melting on the tile floor outside of the shops surrounding the square. It was such a sad thing, but also beautiful. The craftsmanship of the tile and the wonderfully created delicious dessert were both very Italian in nature.

The gelato would not last too much longer in the unseasonably warm October weather. It reminds me of how fragile Venice is itself as it continues to sink into the mud each year.

About Scott Aumann

Wausau, WI

Scott Aumann has always had a love of photography. It all started when he was young while looking through old family photo albums. There was something special about those photos that he couldn't explain. When his family got a Polaroid camera, he was able to take photos and then see the results almost instantly. Scott later developed his interest into a more serious hobby during high school when he took a photography course offered there. He learned all of the core skills needed to be a good photographer. At that time, cameras were still film. Scott learned how to shoot on film, develop the film, and even develop the print. These skills would help him when he made the leap to digital years later.

Scott is also interested in many other things including music, cars, and electronics. You might find all of these interests creeping into his photography. Scott worked for over 20 years at a theater lighting company as an electronics technician. He was exposed to a theatrical way of lighting subjects during that time.

Scott's love of music served him well. He was part of a blues-rock band from Madison, WI called Mojo Radio that was signed to the Grooveyard Records label. Scott spent much of his time while not playing to document the band's journey. There are countless shots of the band backstage or in the studio.

Scott tries to blend a lot of his passions into one thing. Sometimes that creates a new way of thinking about a subject. He uses his electronics mind to think about how things work underneath the shell, his car mind to see the overall design, his music mind to feel how things flow together, and finally his photography mind to capture a great image.

Scott is always looking to learn new things. Sometimes even limiting himself to force himself into finding a solution he hadn't thought of before.
