venice backyard

large | popular


I had the fortune of visiting Venice again last weekend. At this time of year the city is not so overcrowded as in summer. It allows for more peace and quietness; to get closer to and to explore the pittoresque surroundings.


The churches and islands are fabulous but it is also very rewarding to walk the backyards and witness the rare beauty of these old buildings (even though most would be in need for some serious renovation by today's standards).


I have picked this capture primarily because I like light and the colors. Comments without graphics are very much appreciated. Thank you!


There is a painting from another artist inspired from this photograph available here.
