Venice back in the day…today

A couple years ago, I went to Venice.  It’s a beautiful town full of gondolas, gelato, and canals.  Oh, and it’s also full of people–Especially around summertime.  Cruise ships and planes unload about 55,000 tourists every day to explore the small city.  It makes you wonder:  what did it look like back then when travelling wasn’t such a common activity.  Giuseppe Desideri is an Italian photographer that captures the city as what it looked like in the dark ages.  His photos are eerily devoid of people and he further amplifies that feeling by capturing images on cloudy and foggy days.  Take a look!  It looks far more beautiful than what I saw when I was actually in Italy.
