Chiesa San Martino Tonight, 8:45 pm
In the course of trying to take this picture I realized how oppressively well-lit parts of Venice are: high-powered floods, even a surveillance camera or two. Perhaps it's just because this area is around the Arsenale with its active military presence, but it's no longer the gloomy Venice of Donald Sutherland's and Julie Christie's Don't Look Now. At least not in this campiello.
