about venice in words & pics, with and without my 9-year-old son
Just found your blog via Venice Daily Photo...looks like I have found another blog to quench my missing of Venice.
I'm happy you discovered it! Before I ever thought we might be able to live here, VDP was the first blog I found about Venice: it and the others I've found through it continue to show me that even if one is lucky enough not to have to miss the city while living elsewhere, there's still plenty of things I miss even while living here. If that makes any sense...
Excellent! like this other famous picture:http://static.rateyourmusic.com/album_images/3661cf814a62492677ad7437501357bf/461037.jpgIt suggests that something is going on in the quiet night in a lit spot.
I'm a sucker for lighted signs of life amid darkness, so I'm glad to find that you share my weakness (or should we call it a strength?). The great pic you link to, though I know it's in Paris, for some reason reminds me of the beautiful small Campiello Barbaro in Dorsoduro. Perhaps because last time I saw it was late at night.
