Foggy










It was another foggy morning in Venice and I left a bit early to snap some photos on my way to church. I got a new camera and thought this was a great time to try out some of the features. Venice is such a beautiful city in color but the detail and ambience you get from seppia and black and white is incredible.
I took these around 10am and at some points by the water, you couldnt see 10 feet in front of you. By noon when I got out of church, the worst of it had evaporated but there was still fog in the air. I guess I wont see snow this year on the gondolas like I had hoped and today I couldnt even see the gondolas!

Congrats on your new camera! I love black and white photos. These are wonderful :)

I never knew that the pictures would be so good in B & W or Sepia. I think that it makes Venice even more beautiful than it is.

yeah the fog has been crazy lately! But those pictures look so cool. They kind of make it look like an old desserted town (which we all know it definitely isnt), but its cool because there were no people in any of the shots, and the black and white and sepia effect makes it so cool:) Good job!

Hi Susan,
Just found out about your blog and love it. We have mutual friends, Norm and Winnie Wakefield and visited them a few weeks ago in your hometown. Hubby and I will be in Venice for 2 days the end of April on a Royal Caribbean cruise. I'd love to have your comments and recommendations. Please e-mail me at avad88@hotmail.com. thanks Ava Dunlow
