Weathering

Venice is the city of love, romance, and culture. This city is mystical as it’s solid and liquid at the same time. A lot of artists, poets and writers have fallen for this city. It was the July of 2015, a hot and humid day when I set foot in the city. I experienced what love at first sight is? I was spellbound by the splendor and beauty of its mesmerizing beauty. This was the only city run by councils when every city in Europe was run by the kings. Venice has an attraction that allures the tourists. When you are roaming from one street to the other looking at the chapels and churches set in the special architecture typical to the city you are transported to a different time via the enchantment portal.

You lose track of time and become a character from the merchant of Venice, roaming in the 18th century Venice. The first floors of almost all the buildings are ruined by the water erosion, the walls are showing some signs of wind and rain weathering. The interesting fact is that this erosion is adding a magical glamour and charm to the city, making it more charismatic.
