Traveler Writer Photographer

There’s only so much of a place you can get from a postcard. Those little glossy tidbits usually display Photoshopped representations of the “best” of a city. Rarely will you get the daily life or quiet alleys that really exude the soul of a locale.

When I traveled through the Mediterranean, I kept my eye out for street art in each city. What I got was a flavor of the local community, spoken via graffiti and street signs: politics, subversion, apartments for rent and just general mischief. I’ve included, below, my collection of street art photos from Venice. I’ll post shots from other cities—including Athens, Monte Carlo, Florence, Rome and more—as time goes on.

    You know for a city so beautiul I was surprised not to see more legit street art, even if hidden in the back alleys. It’s too bad because I love street art,

       Yeah, street art really fascinates me. It says so much and yet remains mysterious. I have a few shots from Athens (actually, a LOT from Athens) and Florence that I may put up later!
