More Venice

You didn’t think I was done, did you? I took almost 400 photos so I’m happy to have somewhere to share them.

How many photos of gondolas can I take? I heard that each one is about the price of a car.

A view of the Grand Canal-a busy place.

A quiet evening and smooth canal.

Someone hard at work. This boat was either putting something into a house or taking it out. Just imagine, anything delivered has to be done by boat, trash pick up too.

The interior of another bar for snacks and drinks. It was sort of strange in that there were shelves everywhere selling bottles of wine and few places to eat. Many people take their food and drinks outside and sit on the wall along the canal.

We went to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. She and her 12 beloved pets are buried there. I’m not really into modern art. What I liked most was the setting and photos of her in the various rooms. It looked really stark and bare to me, very minimal and not warm and cosy. She helped a lot of modern artists get their start, like Pollack.

Some blue glass figures there in a window with the canal behind.

One morning I went outside at about seven and, except for some street cleaners with their brooms and other photographers, I pretty much had the usually packed place to my self.

  1. I’ll say it again … I never tire of these views and could gaze upon them all day!! You have some great shots 🙂

  2. What great photos. I’ve never been to Venice, or anywhere in Italy actually- I keep heading on straight back to France. It does look magnificent. I went back and checked out your other posts too, perhaps I’ll have to fit Venice in one trip.

  3. Love the shot of the gondolas all lined up – looks like a painting. And you and Maurice on the water-taxi…cute, cute, cute!
