“IN PHOTOS” is a series I will use to share many of the hundreds of photos I have taken during my travels. It is a series I have thought about for a while now, but did not want to start until I got back home from my trip. However after spending a week in Chefchaouen, Morocco I couldn’t wait any longer. “IN PHOTOS” will not have a set schedule like my “MUSIC MONDAY” or “PHOTO ROUND UP” series. “IN PHOTOS” will be a post with several photos with no limit. The only restriction this series will have is that it must be about a certain subject or theme. I will write a brief paragraph or sentence describing the subject or theme of the photos and then post the photos. I will label the photos (if you hover over them with your mouse you will see the label), but I will not caption the photos like I do on my blog post or on “PHOTO ROUND UP” with my thoughts. I want to use “IN PHOTOS” to share my photos and let you come up with your own thoughts about the images and hope you share them with me.
Venice is a city I have always dreamed of visiting. I had seen so many photos of it and in so many movies. As a kid I always wondered how they could build a city out of hundreds of islands where the roads are canals and the cars are boats, and make it function. Well now that I have visited I can tell you they have been able to make it function for HUNDREDS of years. This city is one of those cities that either you love or hate. I have talked with many people about it and it seems to be no in between. In my case I fell in love with it. It is absolutely one of the most magical cities I have ever visited in my life.
As soon as I got there I couldn’t stop smiling. I had one of those feelings you get every once in a while when you are on a trip around the world. The feeling of HOLY SHIT I AM ACTUALLY HERE. Yes that feeling for 2 whole days did not leave me at all. The hostel unfortunately was out of good maps of the city so they gave me a crappy map that you can see in the 1st photo to use to get around Venice. I thought okay I will use this map to get to the Rialto and San Marco square, but once I see those two things I will ditch it and just get lost in Venice. I knew I didn’t want to take a Venice Gondola Ride, but wanted to see the real side of Venice. I wanted to see the small canals and walk ways winding in a million ways with a million bridges leading every way you can imagine. So I did just that over the next two days I spent countless hours literally lost in Venice and ended up taking over 400 of Venice alone. Since all I did was walk and take photos of Venice I thought I would make this post a IN PHOTOS post and share with you some of my favorite photos I took while I was lost in Venice. I will be posting the photos of the colorful town of Burano at some other point, but for now I hope you enjoy these of Venice.
Hope you enjoyed the photos & I hope you share your thoughts below.
