”We photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth can make them come back again. We cannot develop and print a memory.” Henri Cartier-Bresson
After another busy weekend, I am not really ready for Monday! It arrives and compels us forward ready or not! Today’s image was taken on our last trip to Venice. Working with textures I gave the view an aged look quite suitable for the age of the city.
I wonder if our memories are as easily altered to suit our needs? Henri Cartier-Bresson might have been amazed at what we can do with our photos with today’s technology!
Venice Italy at sunrise, a quiet morning, before the tourists are up and about, the gondolas rocking quietly with the waves.

The travel guides suggest that the Rio San Barnaba is one of the prettiest canals in the area, it is home to the floating barge crammed with fruit and vegetables that was featured earlier in the blog. Quiet at night the canal reflects the lights of the shops and restaurants that line it giving it a friendly and peaceful feeling.
It was 6 am and we were on our way to St. Mark’s Square to see the sunrise – the question of why did cross our minds, as it was raining it was quite possible there would not be much of a sunrise. We were already awake, out the door and wet stop! Here is Bill standing on the bridge waiting for me as I get some pictures off the Accedemia Bridge.
