stunning. Who lives in that glass cube? Wealthy folk? And that water looks like glass...maybe it is glass?

Waitaminute... that's the wrong Venice.

I've walked around Venice quite a bit but I've never seen it like this. A marvelous image.

My old stomping grounds. I lived not far from the canals for 5 years back in my twenties. I don't remember that glass cube -- was it built in the last 15 years?

This is gorgeous, K.

If I lived in the cube, I'd never close the curtains. Let the gondola full of people look in. Maybe I'd hear Verdi.

You've captured the spirit.

Petrea said...

You even caught the reflection of the star. Glassy and classy.

Wow, first, great capture. Second, wow, were are all these commenters coming from?!

I remember when there used to be dead ducks floating in the canals and Matt Groening hadn't made it big and added a second story to his house...

This is beautiful K. I'm with KM, it almost looks like glass. Very nice!

Sublime - in color. You sure use your equipment well. :)
