For me, probably the best word to describe Venice is enchanting. As I'm sure anyone who has been there will agree, this bewitching city of vibrant colours, criss-crossed with crooked canals magically balancing a myriad of majestic architecture and old world charm gets right under your skin. The constantly changing light transforms the waterways from the pale emerald green of day to the inky black of night. The palatial palazzos always stir your imagination and curiosity as you wonder of the history and mysteries held within the sometimes decaying walls. The ever present gondoliers offer throngs of tourists the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the 'dolce vita' whilst they navigate the Grand Canal, serenade you and show you all the glory of Venice from a slightly different perspective. This famously sinking city may not live forever but it will certainly live forever in your heart. I blended a little texture with my original photograph in black and white to compliment the old world feel of this classic Venetian canal scene.
