Venice at night, bridge to Rialto

Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life.” –Anna Akhmatova

I took a quick look at some of my images taken on my trip to Venice, it is a place I could return to again and again.  If  you get away from the busy tourist area and St. Mark’s Square there are many quiet streets, and squares, wonderful coffee and pastry shop, and for the photographer great light.

this weeks photo challenge on  is day’s end,  I like the warm light in the restaurants at the end of the bridge, and can’t image a better place for a glass a wine at the end of the day.  I would recommend you drop by the photo friday site and check out some of the other great photos. Other great photo challenge sites PhotoSunday this weekend’s word “evening” and Lensday challelnge for Peaceful!

san francisco in motion, abstract landscape photography

yesterday was a big day of the always exciting bookeeping chore that needs to be done, let me tell you this isn’t my favorite way to spend an evening after work!   I have been experimenting with abstract landscapes, here is san fransisco, as sunset.  It had been a cool and cloudy day in November and there wasn’t much of a sunset, the lights were starting to come on in the buildings and we had been wandering around for a few hours seeing th sites. I knew this was the best light I was going to get over the city, we were getting cold, and hungry, so I took a few frames and carried on.

It is a little difficult to see, but you can make out the sign for Ghirardelli Square, after dinner we went there and had the greatest ice cream sundaes ever, it is the best place to blow your diet, and splurge on something amazing!!!!!!
