venice, in 2 shots

these were the only shots that survived my minolta’s broken speed shutter (horray for the holga’s lack of mechanical-things-that-might-go-wrong!). 10 minutes & 8 euros later, and he’s as good as new, the little bastard.

venice is a maze of intensity, the kind that leaves you with headaches from noticing all the details in every single facade. makes taking pictures a bit useless, ’cause you know it’s all been photographed before. you almost want to hate the city and yet… it’s irresistible. the tiny streets, the canals, even the swarms of tourists that practically drag you with them on a very worn out path. we’ll definitely go back for more someday.

hello ana
when I was younger I was for 14 days alone in venice…my friends at home asked me what I was doing the whole day in such a little place but it is as you write it down: every place has so much details that when you took the road for the 5th time it will always be different and the tourists they make venice even much more special…I married with my SELF in venice…the best time of my life….( a very bad time for my boyfriend in belgium )thank you for bringing back that special feeling I had there because of your pictures….
