for easter day
enjoy the good old times feelings
i got my first digital camera in 2001, it was springtime— now it’s time travel during fourth week lockdown—
vibrant colors of pixels, long download, that was a different time, just different. as subject of my photographs was the venice mainland (named venice-mestre) where my house. here my very first pictures of a small farm with animals, hens and rabbits , a country home in town. i cannnot believe nineteen years passed since.
what happened to the small farm?
here a picture i taken in 2003
and at last 2006 the small farm was razed to build a parking lot. the last picture i took on april 8, 2006
but doesn’t lose hope, everything changes but the pixels wrote an everlasting memory.

Silent Spring in Venice
In the deserted city. Venice waterbus running without passengers,
the railroad station seen at noon without people at the same time
normally crowded. The gondoliers w/out tourists by the Bridge of
Sighs, while thoughtful cat walk alone.

Carnival in Venice is just around the corner. After the big flood and fear of contagion people come back to find these carnival days, it is a good news because the mask has win against the “mask”.
Anyway I have found this label on the wall, the sign says “Here stayed a 15 years old Wolfang Amadeus Mozart during Carnival 1771 having fun.” All right, you would say, what’s the scoop? Venice the city is full of memorie like that.
So here are the pictures of “view from the bridge” series… oh I forgot : the house where Mozart was is at “Ponte dei barcaroli o dei cuoridoro” ( translation: gondoliers bridge hearts of gold ) and the cat was looking near the Tintoretto house.
