The Dwelling – Venice, Italy – Somewhere In Time Weekly Travel Photo.
Somewhere In Time is a weekly travel photo from around the world. Enjoy!
It seems to happen frequently. I find myself dwelling about our brief days in Venice. What was it about that place? I just can’t seem to get it out of my head. If I close my eyes (yes, I know this sounds cheesy) I can hear it, see it and smell it.
Like she’s RIGHT there.
I think it’s just the type of place you visit and you fall in love with. Then it just never leaves you. Kinda like the one that got away. You always remember something special about it but what you really remember is how you felt when you were hanging out together.
A couple weeks ago I did a very large photo essay – Venice After Dark. It’s probably my favorite photo essay yet – if you haven’t seen it definitely take a gander over and check it out. It’s my version of Venice at night – steamy, dark, mysterious.
What’s been interesting about it that photo essay is reading the comments. It seems that a lot of people feel the same way I do about Venice. Whether their trip was last year or 30 years ago they remembered the city clearly. Most importantly, everyone seems to have strong feelings about just how much they loved it, how much they miss it and how badly they want to go back.
There was one comment in particular that I really loved. Carol hit the nail on the head when she left this one and I felt, after reading it, that I was right there walking beside her and watching her life unfold.
“I was in Venice in my 20’s with beau on arm dressed like Katherine Hepburn and walking the streets like I was the queen of style. It was so long ago and Venice has not changed (except for the plastered billboards). I would give anything to walk those streets 40 years ago again and giving my glorious smile full of a vitality that only that city can give.”
Thank you so much Carol for leaving that comment. I don’t think anything I could write anything that would sum it up with such clarity.
So the photo in this post? That’s Venice from above. I took this photo from the top of the Campanile in St. Mark’s Square right around sunset. It was taken just moments after I took this photo – Sunset At The Campanile – which was a different Somewhere In Time photo published in April.
Whatever you do in this life, do what you can to get to Venice.
At some point in your life you’ll want and need to be a part of her. There is some crazy magic happening in those streets.
