worn out

12/12/2010 § 4 Comments

One of the things I loved about Venice is how worn and old everything is. I really like the second photo because it shows all the different layers and construction of the building [architecture nerd talking]. I think places are more authentic when things are a bit more rough around the edges.

It’s kind of getting late so I’ll keep it short. I had a fun day trip yesterday with some friends to Belgium. We visited Brugge and Antwerp and I finished off a roll of film, so I will have more [current] photos to share soon. There are some interesting activities coming up this week with Lichtjesavond [evening of lights] and the Eindejaarborrel [year end party]… then back home next Monday! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.

    I’m looking forward to those photos! I see what you mean about places being rough around the edges. I like when buildings look like they’ve been lived in.
