Three days in Venice

Canaletto Venice
Yes, I know, I am very fortunate: I am leaving tonight for a three-day (much deserved, if I may say so) vacation in Venice. I have not been there in twenty years and, though I do not believe the city has changed much, I certainly have.

Will I be as dazzled as last time? Will I see things differently?

I will not post new entries for a few days, but will continue following your comments. Thank you so much for engaging in these discussions with me. And I promise you a Venice post upon my return!

    Yes, I found the teensy cable that allows me to download my pictures into my laptop. So here they are!I left out the “big” views, which I think are so well represented by the Canalettos (Canaletti?) I used on my first and second posts.Of course when I look at these pictures, I can’t wait to go back to Venice. I know I will. And in the meantime I am happy to enjoy these with you.Difficult not to fall in love with these colors and textures… …

    Oh, Sibylle, I am back already!

    Venice is unbelievably beautiful, even more so than I remembered. I agree with you about this painting. It is a Canaletto, and represents the entrance of the Grand Canal and the Church of the Salute. You know what is amazing about the place? It just looks exactly the same now, over two centuries later. Yesterday was sunny, and the waters of the Canal were a deep turquoise, lighter than the green you see in the painting.

    I have no book set in Venice (yet) but I am sure this – too short – trip will appear, under some shape or other, in my writings.

    You’re probably already there by now but I hope you’re having a great time. Will it be a source of inspiration for another book ? I must say I’ve never been to Italy even though technically I would just have to cross the Alps (I live in Paris).
    This painting is beautiful, who’s the artist ? :)
