Somewhere In Time is a weekly travel photo from around the world. Enjoy!

Backpacker Blues – Venice, Italy

We spent the day walking around Venice and getting lost in its wonderful maze of streets. The end of the day found us facing this large church as the cat-in-the-cradle moon hung low in the sky. Randy went onto the bridge for a better view and behind him a street light glowed, just hiding behind his body and his backpack. I snapped a few quick photos because I couldn’t believe my good luck in having such a perfect silhouette with this stunning Venetian sky as the backdrop.

    Very beautiful shot. Venice is truly charming, don’t tell anybody but although I’m Italian I’ve never been there… I know, shame on me, I will one day 🙂

        @Bethany, I’m from Sardinia but I used to live in Rome. Although, I left Italy 5 years ago and have been wandering around Europe and now East Asia, and loving it. I’ll make it to Venice one day, for sure 😉

    Awesome photo! Looks like a photo from a fairytale, where the street urchin looks at the palace from a distance. Not that I’m calling Randy a “street urchin,” but I love the silhouettes.

      hahaha!! Thanks for the

      interpretation! I think you’re right – it does kinda look that way. 🙂

    I think this may be one of my favorites. I am a such a softie when it comes to night/dusk pictures. There is something so incredibly romantic and mysterious about silhouettes.

      Thanks Erica. 🙂 Silhouettes don’t usually rank really high on my list but all the elements in this one and the color of the sky made it perfect for me. 🙂 @Erica,

    The shades of blue in the sky and the light highlighting the church make this photo beautiful. Great pic to capture the moment!
