Venice in Photos

Venice is a city unlike any other on earth. For a start no cars or even bicycles are allowed and everyone gets around by boat or on foot.

The result is a city where the sights, smells and sounds are completely different to those you'd expect from a city. Watch this video to see how life can be in a city without cars.

For some reason too the light is unique, particularly during the early morning and late afternoon.  Combine this early morning/evening light with the ancient buildings and bustling canals and you have a melancholy beauty of great sadness and great joy; impossible to explain in words.

These photos of Jim's come as close as anything I have seen to capturing this essence of Venice.

It isn't only Venice that Jim has captured so well and I'm sure you'll enjoy his photos of a few other stunning Italian places too.

A little about Jim before we get onto the photos; Jim Brandano is a photographer who now lives in Florida and runs a photography business together with his wife. If you'd like to learn more about Jim then click here.
