Winter in Venice

Winter in Venice

Winter light is different, even if the weather isn’t very wintery here in Venice now. These photos are from a tour on December 27th around the city.

Every Christmas there’s a fairground in Venice, in the Riva dei Sette Martiri, for small children.

We’ve had a good deal of fog this winter, but still no snow. These photos are from the St. Mark’s and Riva dei Sette Martiri in Venice.

A day a-rowing

A day a-rowing

Last year we bought a small Venetian rowing boat, a s-ciopon, which is one of the smallest traditional Venetian boats.

Usually I just fool around in the lagoon near the Certosa island, but yesterday I took it to Venice.

I rowed over to the bus terminal at Piazzale Roma to pick up Martina at 19.30 as she was coming back from work, and the with her back home.

It was a beautiful tour through the dark deserted canals, and the photos below don’t do it justice, but its what I’ve got.

The first photos are taken by myself, rowing with one hand and taking photos with the other. The photos taken after dark are taken by Martina when I’m rowing.
