Quando piove a Venezia (When it rains in Venice)

















It was a much cooler and much rainier May than is usual for Italy. But Venice is imbued with such a wonderful atmosphere when it rains, and I thoroughly enjoyed wandering the wet city streets armed with my umbrella and my camera.

One day, I was caught in a heavy downpour under the awning of a cafe. The owner graciously invited me in for a free espresso to wait out the rain. Thank you Italy for such a lovely time.

I'm totally jealous! Venice has been my latest obsession and I really want to try to get out there soon.

These images are absolutely stunning. The out-of-focus quality really gives them a different feel and I just love the shiny reflections everywhere. Just beautiful!

I couldn't agree more about Venice, in the rain. In any weather, really, Venice is pure magic. It's perfect, just as it always is. But somehow, your photos make it moreso.
