Some people says “it is hard to be original when it comes to Venice. Every aspects of the city has been painted, photographed and described a hundred times before by some of the greatest minds of the Western hemisphere”
I guess that was right. I myself had seen many pictures, paintings, and even comics about Venice. I have clear vision of how Venice looks like, and how I should take pictures of this beautiful city.
Alas, this morning gave me unexpected weather. The mist clouded the city since early day. This casted monochromatic ambience throughout the city. My hope to get sparkling scenes of Venice from bright sunlight was gone.
But thankfully Venice is still as enchanting as ever. The small island on the northeastern of Italy does not need help from the nature to give you interesting point of interests. The decaying walls, the artistic gondolas, and the mirages reflected in every corner of canals, however unoriginal, are still feast for photographers.
So here are some of my shots from today. I hope I’m still able to capture the beauty of Venice, one of the most picturesque city in the world, although of course, it’s far from original 🙂
