venice carnival

Posted by on 25 Jan 2011 | Category: italy, photography

During our 2 year stay in Italy, we made several visits to Venice, but this (14 Feb 2010) was the most colorful, and beyond our imagination. The train trip from Bologna where we stayed, to Venice was totally packed. It is rare to travel standing in a train in Italy, but this time it was different. It was a Sunday – it was February 14th the Valentine’s day – and above all, it was the final day of the Venice carnival! Bologna was the starting station for the train, but before we carried our baby, his pram and ourselves on to the train, it was crammed upto the door. Fortunately, we got a foldable-door-seat next to the toilet, and on that I sat, with sarah on my lap, and pratya on sarah’s lap.

Regardless of the rush and push, everyone was jovial – some of them already wearing the masks and gowns for the carnival, and we reached Venice in 1:30 hours. Venice is a string of islands linked by bridges and boats. The islands were packed, and we moved along with the flowing crowd, from boat to island to boat to island… We were rewarded with all the colors you see below :) Don’t miss the last one!

Cemeteries – they remind us of our forgotten past, and hint us on our imminent future.

Wherever we go, if time and distance permits, we try to make a visit to the local cemeteries. Cemeteries around the world have distinct styles, and talks a lot about the people of that region. They have a lot in common too…

door knobs of italy

Posted by on 26 Oct 2009 | Category: italy, photography

One of our favorite themes for photography in Italy are these fabulous door knobs. There are a lot of old buildings in Italy, from the ancient to the medieval. Completely new buildings are lesser than you expect and what they usually do here is to repair and modernize old buildings, especially the interiors, while keeping the aesthetically pleasing “ruined” and “old” exteriors.
