Venice in the Rain
Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 18, 2012
We arrived just after several days of heavy rain. I could see the flooded fields from the airplane window as we approached Milan. Venice has a very different character in the rain. In bright sunlight, the tourists are streaming through every side and main street and your eyes are dazzled by the ubiquitous sparkly masks. After a heavy rain, Venice has a quieter, softer, more solemn feeling. Colors are muted.
Even the normally packed Piazza San Marco is quiet. I liked the jaunty red chairs with no one to occupy them, so I rendered the rest of the photo in B/W.
