Venice in August isn’t really advisable due to massive overcrowding & the intense heat but after a last minute change of plan to visit Val d’Orcia in Tuscany I had instead just four days at hand & decided on a short trip to Venice with the bus from Munich. From those four days I slept just once in a Hotel on the island of Certosa while the rest of my time was spent shooting material day & night, especially at night where the lagoon city is so peaceful. During the day though it was unbearable, too warm & way too many people. Like ants marching through the tight lanes, barely taking in what they were passing, others only interested in the boutiques & special offers in souvenir shops, totally crazy. I am nonetheless happy that I was there to document a few of those magical photographic opportunities & hopefully also to of captured a little of that mystical, romantic atmosphere that only Venice has to offer.
