This week’s theme: Carefree
Of course I shall be drawing inspiration for some time to come from the hundreds of photos that I took while I was away this past week in Venice and around the North-eastern Italian state of Veneto.
I came across a small flock of pigeons and a young seagull yesterday morning while still in Venice waiting turn to have a drink and a bath in the fabulous wrought iron water fountain at the water’s edge on the islet of Venice’s La Giudecca, effectively the Jewish quarter. Although this photo is originally in colour, I’ve tweaked it and played with it a little to give you a black and white version, which I personally love.
I’m also going to include here the short clip of film I took of the pigeons bathing. It’s enchanting to watch, and made my morning in amongst all the other visual treasures I encountered. They were really enjoying themselves, utterly oblivious to my presence except for the rather shy young seagull in the background who wanted to join in but seemed to be quite wary of me…
