Venice – An Atypical 24-Image Gallery

The internet is drowning in images of Venice, a city which happens to be drowning into the Adriatic. So I decided to piece together a somewhat atypical Venice image gallery from my last visit. Enjoy.

    Very interesting photos, presents Venice in a different light for sure! I love how some of the photos have a very moody, intense looking sky.

      Thanks – I was pretty lucky with the light that afternoon. Great clouds and some very nice light just before sunset. And thanks for stopping by. 🙂

    I love these photos! Particularly the one of the washing hanging outside the house. I went to Venice years ago on a weekend break and during our quick trip there and loved it. It was really interesting to see this different side of it. I find it hard to believe that cruise ships of that size are allowed!

    1. Bob R says

      Thanks – yes, the giant cruise ships are killing the lagoon. Allowing them is catastrophically short-sighted.

    Lovely unusual photos. Been too long since I was last there.

      Thanks – very glad you enjoyed.

    I never knew there were cruise ships in Venice. There goes the neighborhood!

    Just love your very real photos of Venice. The vegetable gondolas are just charming.

    Love the mural of the tourist!

    First of all, can I say that I absolutely love looking at your blog. So interesting and inspiring and I am glad I follow you. I particularly love the fat tourist caricature above with the Louis Vuitton shopping bags. You can tell the locals just despise these kinds of tourist (who can blame them!).

    I would like to check whether you would be ok with me putting a link to your page on a page of mine about street art please – of course with credits etc. but I think it would compliment what I am proposing to do nicely? I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Rachel

      Hi Rachel — thanks for the note, very much appreciated. Yes by all means, feel free to link. And please let me know when the page is up, I’m a big fan and student of street art. Cheers!

        Thank you!!! Am at work now but will work on it tonight when I get home. Loved last night’s blog on the protests in Ljubljana btw – really insightful and great photos.

        Actually I wrote it the other day when I first contacted you but have now updated the end of the post with a link to your page. Thanks for agreeing to this. Best wishes.
