Italian text break

Each of these pictures were taken near Venice’s Lido water bus stop on the way to the beach. It was a wonderful surprise to find that Venice can be a sunbathing and sea swimming holiday. The beach was beautiful.


As we relaxed, ordinary Venetians carried on their working lives. I like the similarities and the differences of these two pictures of Italians texting during breaks from work and hope you do too.



Both photos were taken with the Olympus OMD EM1 and 12-40mm 2.8 lens.
