VENICE | PHOTOS LONG OVERDUE

There is no place in the world that is quite like Venice – in my opinion it is one of the crowning jewels of Europe and while it has had a lot of “changes” and “upgrades” I still feel that the city as a whole has stayed true to its heritage and upon setting foot in the city, you are immediately transported to a place you feel you’ve only ever seen in a dream… or a movie at best.

Unfortunately I was only in Venice for a few hours – we got in from Prague at 5 in the morning, slept until 9 and then headed out to meet up with some friends before catching a cruise to Greece leaving at 2:00 pm.

I tried to make up in quality what I lacked in time – so enjoy the pictures!

I was SO sure this was the Basilica … nope… sure wasn’t.

And I thought this was the Rialto … wrong again.

It’s really not fair how beautiful Venice is. Like – at all.

And I’m 99% sure the light is prettier there as well.

What’s a trip to Venice without spotting a gondola?

It was pretty cool to sail out of Venice on the cruise because I got some fantastic elevated shots from the water I would not have been able to get otherwise.

Does it make me a little OCD that all I’m noticing is that my camera lens is a little dirty here?

There’s Tyler!

Oh just another beautiful structure on a beautiful island in Venice.  Reminds me of The Tourist!

No idea what was happening here, but it was PACKED!

One of my favorite shots of the day.

The houses out on the islands were absolutely humongous!

Okay – that does it – going back now!

VENICE BEACH & THE 4TH OF JULY

Posted in Fashion, Food, Life, photography, Sightseeing, Street Style with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2010 by Me & Marisa

Fourth of July spent in the Marina del Ray with amazing people, gorgeous sunset, and spectacular fireworks. What more does one need?

We woke up kinda late (like 11 am ) on the 4th and decided to go do brunch at a great restaurant nearby in Venice called The Terrace. Food was soooooo good (as you can see below). Then we came back and decided to hit the beach for a couple hours. It was off and on sun but somehow Tyler managed to get really burnt haha. After a stint at the beach, we went back to Diana’s and grabbed a couple bikes to go tour Venice Beach. I figured it was a must-see for L.A. as I don’t think there is really anything quite like Muscle Beach anywhere else. Got some really great street style pictures there and then we headed back home to celebrate the 4th. The party had already started when we arrived and as the sun was starting to set, we got some amazing pictures. I have more on my iPhone, but this is all for today ha. Enjoy the pics!

Guess which is mine…
Does this even classify as taking your dog for a “walk”?
Block parties were everywhere in the Marina. And all were plastered with signs reading “Residents ONLY!”
I want this door! It reminds me of an airplane haha.
Horses make sense… In a very crowded area…
I love it when words fail me.
The Venice Beach Police at their best; Serve, protect and text.
Another dog going for a “walk”. Really like this pic though!
Obviously New Yorkers visiting L.A. ha.
My focus of this pic was the M C Hammer wannabe in the red sweatshirt… I completely missed the guy in the hat with the mini-surfboard haha.
Blah, auto-focus wasn’t on.
Oh Sylvia, you are so chic 🙂
And some photos require no retouching, like this one of Adriana in silhouette (beautiful!) and the three sirens with the flag. So patriotic 🙂
Madonna and Child meets Liberty Leading the People?
Hands down my favorite picture! Such a fun picture, so much movement!
