Last Day in Venice

Oct 3, 2012

These pho­tos were tak­en the last day Car­o­line and I were in Venice. I could have spent weeks tak­ing pho­tos as each turn of the nar­row streets are filled with gor­geous archi­tec­ture. We spent the morn­ing and ear­ly after­noon just roam­ing around see­ing as much as we could and believe me we cov­ered a lot of ground.

  • Pho­tos 1, 2 and 3 were tak­en in the Muse­um of Music. It is a free muse­um that the muse­um that show­cas­es the life of Anto­nio Vival­di who was a com­pos­er and musi­cian from Venice.
  • Pho­to 4 is of San Moi­se Church.
  • Pho­to 5, 6, 7 and 8 were tak­en while we were roam­ing the streets.
  • Pho­tos 9 and 10 are of San­ta Maria del­la Salute. I walked for what seemed like for­ev­er to see this and must admit it was so worth every sin­gle step. San­ta Maria del­la Salute church is sup­port­ed by over one mil­lion tim­ber piles. Beyond the church is Pun­ta del­la Dogana, upon which stands a 17th cen­tu­ry tow­er crowned by two bronze Atlases sup­port­ing a gold­en globe. From the 15th cen­tu­ry onward, duty on goods arriv­ing from over­seas was extract­ed on this side.
  • Pho­to 11 was tak­en at the point and you can see the Bell Tow­er.

Mid-after­noon we all met at the Bell Tow­er in Saint Mark’s Square to take an incred­i­ble tour of the Doge’s Palace. Lau­ra arranged for us to take the Secret Itin­er­aries Tour and it was awe­some.

  • Pho­tos 1, 2 and 3 were tak­en in Saint Mark’s Square.
  • Pho­tos 4 through 15 are all of the Doge’s Palace. They did not leave off one sin­gle detail. Every square inch of the palace was so ornate. It is a tru­ly spec­tac­u­lar place to tour.

So that is it… my Italy trip is com­plete and now I sit back in real­i­ty with one dead­line after anoth­er. But, I’m blessed and I love what I do and now have loads of pho­tos to use in projects. If you want to go to Italy and do some cre­at­ing at the same time you need to check out Lau­ra’s upcom­ing retreat next year in June. You will not be dis­ap­point­ed.
