Behind the bridge in Venice…there is another, hidden side. I find the picture somehow fascinating because it doesn’t let us see certain elements at first glance. As we follow the stairs leading into the water, we suddenly see those elements that the view of the lovely bridge does not let us see. A play of lights, shadows and reflections. (What I like most are the steps, which at first glance appear to disappear into the water, but actually lead to the beautifully decorated glass door.)
I am overwhelmed by the beauty of Venice. This city in the sea is unique, mysterious and so lovely in every way. For me, the Carnevale di Venezia was one of the most beautiful this year because there were more photo moments for me than ever before. I was out and about from 6 am to 9 pm to capture the beauties of the city and the Carnevale with my camera as I saw with my eyes. The first rays of sunshine in the morning were simply a dream because the colors of the costumes were really illuminated. The night was somehow mysterious with all the dark corners, canals and winding alleys where the light was reflected so impressively in the water. On the way back to my hotel I saw this little corner with the bridge in front. I was blown away, couldn’t wait to take a picture and realized I didn’t have my tripod with me so I made the best of what I had. I hope I managed to capture this mood well enough for you? Hope you like it at least a little. I had great joy to capture this lovely szenery only with my hands on the camera. That feeling is for me something that I like it the most. More than anything else in photographic.
With this Venice night image I would like to start a series that reflects my days there, including and above all the Carnival itself, which still fascinates me to this day. I’m a little sorry for those who don’t prefer this type of photography, but I can’t hide my great passion for this subject. (Taking good pictures of the Carnival and the costumes isn’t easy at all.) It’s an important part of my photographic work, which challenges me to become a little bit better every year when I’m in the seaside town. Thank you for your understanding and support in this case.
I’m still a daydreamer and invite you to dream a little dream with me in the city of love…
