Sorry for that, but I just had to bother you once again with Venetian gondole.

They are everywhere and, yes, it’s kitsch, but sometimes kitsch is OK. At least it’s very original kitsch 😀

When I began processing these images, I asked myself, what will I take images of when I am the next time in Venice? Still gondole? Won’t I get tired of them? Won’t you?

But then it occurred to me that I have taken images of cars and bicycles for years. Few have complained, some seem to like it and I did certainly not grow tired of them. As with everything, there’s certainly more than one way to photograph a gondola.

One more time the Song of the Day is “Corso Delle Gondole” from the 1987 Rondò Veneziano album “Misteriosa Venezia”. Hear it on YouTube.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
