Somewhere In Venice
Painting - Fine Art Photograph
Together yet Alone. A Piazza in the back quiet quarters of Venice where most of its citizens live. After a long day navigating the overwhelming tourist traffic I needed to find a quiet spot that had a place to buy something to eat and relax for a while. I found a small grocery store and with hand gestures and my lousy Italian, managed to have them make me a sandwich. It was phenomenal; one of the best meals I had in Venice and cheaper than anywhere else in this historic city.
While savouring the moment I saw these two people also enjoying a quiet time, each seemingly in their own world far from the hustle and bustle. I always wanted to do a painting of this scene but feel that moments like these are sometimes best captured with a camera.
