[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When these buildings were erected, who would have forseen that eventually there would be motor boats travelling up and down the canals?
To be honest, the continual movement of the water against the stone work etc., cannot be very good for the foundations.
It was very difficult to get the perspective just right for this shot.I tried to adjust it through PP, but when one line was right, then another was out of line, hence the leaning tower.We had had showers of rain, so consequently a rather boring sky!

I just love the different colours of the buildings and all of their details.

After posting I discovered that the theme for this week was 'Weathered', so have added it to the theme.
Thanks for looking.

A different look at Venice away from the crowd,realistic colors and excellent detail.A marvelous place!All the best Otto.

Ciao Jean, lovely corner of fantastic Venice, wonderful colors, excellent perspective and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Jean
A beautiful scene very capably captured. Plenty of interest and action in this scene. Just possibly, it may be a little pale, but I'm nit picking.

In need of a lick of paint after a touch up of some plaster I reckon.
You could add this to the theme this week of weathered I reckon.
Wishing you well for the New Year.


Bom dia Jean,

This is really a great contrast, the old canal of Venice and a modern boat, very well seen, excellent photo

Hi Jean,
Idyllic scene and wonderful combination depicting different times. Quite a harmonious balance presented.
PS. The bubbled reflections were from a series of planned images. Bubbles made from my sons soap gun.
