I feel that so much has already been said about Venice that I am somewhat lost for words. It is also very difficult to describe a feeling a city invokes in a person. How do you describe that warm sensation, like you are constantly being caressed by the person you are in love with it? This is Venice to me – perfect, warm, enigmatic and full of untold stories.
You can experience Venice in many different shapes or forms. For example, going at 12 pm in Piazza San Marco is probably not the same as going at 7. Walking through the main streets is not the same as getting lost in the tiny little pathways. Going around the less mainstream canals, where you can barely see a soul. I feel Venice has 2 faces – one, for the tourist crowds taking selfies with a selfie stick, at every landmark. The second, for the people who like to experience it in private. It is easy to choose one or the other. Just turn left when everyone is going right. This article is my view of the pathways of Venice, a visual guide. I find Venice a true inspiration for my photography, as all the colours are just made to work together – every tone and nuance just match. My camera loves it too, so I hope you enjoy what I saw, and also try to create your own pathway in Venice.
I hope you enjoyed looking at Venice through my eyes. X
