At the beginning of August 2007, I visited Venice for the first time. It was a dream come true to visit one of the most unique cities in the world. However, back in the day I only owned two usable lenses and the widest of them was 50mm. It was fun not only to create photos that are somewhat different from the traditional tourist photos, but also getting back to them after almost a decade. Some of the photos didn’t make it due to my increased standard for technical quality. Some had to stay in despite their poor quality due to their significance and some photos were developed for the first time since they were captured.
In March 2015, I was fortunate to visit Venice again after nearly 8 years. I was looking forward to explore this fascinating city again, but my visit was greatly affected by constant drizzle and rain. Nevertheless, I tried to capture as much as I could. The resulting photos are different than I wanted, but that’s the beauty of life – sometimes we get different things that we want and that’s not always a bad thing. Hopefully I’ll be back to this magnificent city soon.
