VENICE, ITALY: A PHOTO DIARY

Venice is one of the most photogenic cities in the world. With narrow canals, charming locals, and colorful buildings, it truly is a photographer dream.

It’s been six months since I moved to New York. Eight months since I left Australia. Almost a year since leaving London.
