Maybe it’s the imperfections – the peeling plaster, the crumbling buildings, the hotchpotch layout – that are the real charm and gem of this otherwise tourism-centric city.  Maybe these lovely flaws of a nevertheless beautiful place are best seen in the weak light of a winter day.  If so, maybe the best way to attempt to capture its ethereal images is to go on a walk with a Holga with its own store of surprises and limitations.

A nice place for people watching.  Get to the balcony of Saint Mark’s Basilica, leave the crowded choke point around the replicas of the Horses and head toward the water, and follow the balcony as it turns the corner.  There, in front of you, is the grand entrance to Venice with the Doge’s Palace to the left, the Piazzetta below, and straight ahead, the Grand Canal.
