Venice (Italy). Photographing Around Me was created to show what can capture my attention: there isn’t any clear intent of describing a place under the touristic or the didactic point of view, unless I have some information that can be interesting to contextualize the posted photo. I say this because sometimes I’m requested to add information like address, opening hours or the story of a certain place, but I’m quite sure that all these info are available and easily findable on the web.
It sounds like a disclaimer, doesn’t it? However, that said, I’m posting another photo that I captured some months ago during a walk of few hours around Venice, which besides the traditional and most typical landscapes (yes, you can find even them in this website), offers an incredible set of glimpses, hidden corners and special places to capture the real essence of this magic city. This one, for example, shows a side street close to Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, one of the most prestigious church in Venice, and therefore one of the most crowded places in town. For this reason – as it happens frequently – I liked this non-conventional view made of a façade, few people and a “minor” canal. But also the decadence of the façade itself, which is contrasting with the magnificence and the splendor of the mentioned church.
All these things were contributing to make special the moment when I captured this photo. A usual, I do not pretend to transmit these feelings to my readers, but I’m afraid that otherwise it’s just a click and not a full and complete emotion. .
