Venice Shining 02

“Memory's images, once they are fixed in words, are erased," Polo said. "Perhaps I am afraid of losing Venice all at once, if I speak of it, or perhaps, speaking of other cities, I have already lost it, little by little.”

Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

Thank you all of you for your comments on my previous spotlight picture of Venice Shining. I'm indeed humbled and most surprised. A sincere thank you to my wife for having the patience to put up with me on one shot after another, of long exposure and re-setting the tripod and camera settings on such a short Venice trip.

This picture is again taken at the same area around the Piazza San Marco. A warm bluish glow in the skies, and tons of yellowish glows in the corridors, building facades and streetlights.
