Venice: A Photographer's Paradise


We’ve just returned from three wonderful weeks in Italy, visiting Venice, Tuscany, and Umbria. There are a lot of photos to go through, sort, and process, and the work is not yet finished. However, I did take time to make a Spark (from Adobe) for Venice, and plan to follow up with at least one from each of the other locations, as well.

This was our first trip to Venice, and while we had fallen in love with Italy and its beautiful scenes on a prior trip, Venice is indeed a photographer’s paradise! Whether you enjoy travel photography, street photography, landscapes, cityscapes, architecture, florals, portraits, or whatever – Venice has it all!

A very walkable city, Venice is compact, but certainly not easy for those with mobility issues. One of our group, Deb, was on crutches after a severe fall, so the many bridges (most with stairs) and the distances were simply too much for her. Some of this was mitigated by using the vaparetti – the water bus, which goes up and down the Grand Canal, around the outside of the main areas of the city, and to the outlying islands, such as Burano, Murano, Lido, etc.
