Cartes postales... du festival de Venise

February 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

C’est mon troisième séjour à Venise (cette fois juste pour un weekend, à l’ouverture du festival), et comme à chaque fois, j’ai trouvé cette ville hors normes fascinante...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 01Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 01I always find Venice fascinating. Its history, its looks...

Au delà des panoramas de carte postales de jour…

L’âme de Venise se révèle quand les foules s’amenuisent et que la lumière commence à baisser.

Dans les “ruelles”, les couleurs deviennent profondes...                        ... et les locaux sortent pour une balade.

Ensuite, la magie opère, et les “feux de circulation” prennent un tout autre sens.

Les taxis n’ont rien à voir avec les taxis noirs, jaunes ou… quelconques dont nous avons l’habitude...

... et ils ne fait aucun doute qu’ici ils sont le moyen classe de se déplacer.

En comparaison, les autres formes de transport paraissent un peu dépassées – comme des vestiges d’une période révolue.

Avez-vous remarqué les gens costumés ? Oui, c’est le carnaval !

... ou d’essayer de reprendre la ville aux hordes, pour ramener le mystère et la gloire passée de la place Saint Marc, en l’envahissant à nouveau.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 12Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 12... or to try reclaiming the city from the hordes, bringing Saint Marco's piazza back to its past mystery and glory...    Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 13Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 13... by quite literally taking it over again...

C’est aussi l’opportunité parfaite de révéler son identité profonde librement, au-delà de toute catégorisation et jugement.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 14Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 14It's also the perfect opportunity to reveal your true self and mingle freely, beyond categorization and judgement.

Même Elvis... et... Michael J ?! sont revenus pour se joindre à la fête...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 15Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 15Even Elvis and... eh... Michael J.?! come back to join the party...

Au crépuscule, libérez votre côté sombre...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 16Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 16When light fades let your darker side come out...

... et vous pourriez faire des rencontres intrigantes, vous rappelant la nature profondément romantique de l’âme de la ville.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 17Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 17... and you might make intriguing encounters....    Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 18Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 18... reminding you of the romantic soul of the city.

Encore plus tard, vous pourriez croiser d’étranges creatures, sur l’eau, ou même dans les airs !
Evidemment, vous ne serez alors pas seul.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 19Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 19Later still, you might spot stranger creatures, on water...    Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 20Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 20... or even in the air! Obviously, you won't be alone then.

Les touristes sont enthousiasmés par ces rencontres fortuites extraordinaires...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 21Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 21Tourists are delighted by the amazing chance encounters... ... et même ceux qui veulent repousser leurs limites devraient trouver satisfaction.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 22Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 22... and even those who want to push the envelope should find satisfaction. Pendant le carnaval, la sérénité est quelque peu mise à distance...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 23Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 23Serenity tends to get curtailed during the carnival...

... mais le grandiose n’est jamais loin ...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 24Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 24... but the grandiose is never far ... ... et la plupart des pas de porte sont paisibles ...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 25Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 25... and peace is on most doorsteps ... ... sous l’œil vigilant des locaux palmés.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 26Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 26... under the watch of palmed locals. De temps en temps, Venise ressemble à une ville européenne normale...

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 27Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 27Occasionally Venice looks like just another European city... ... pardon, à une ville italienne normale.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 28Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 28... correction - Italian city.

Et le lion ailé vénitien nous rappelle partout la grandeur passée.

Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 29Venice postcards - Didier Cayrac - 2017 - 29And the Venetian winged lion is everywhere to remind us of Venice’s grandeur.

Ce voyage m’a aussi donné l’occasion de faire un de mes portraits de rue préférés à ce jour : “Casée à Venise”

A suivre !
