Venice, Italy. October, 2012

Let’s face it, Venice is beautiful no matter the weather. In sunshine, it dazzles. And in fog, such as on this recent morning, it emerges more suggestive and mysterious. Just look at this rooftop of the Basilica of San Marco: Saint Mark himself, beneath him his symbolic lion posed with his gospel on a blue field of stars, a procession of angels paying tribute, multiple spires and decorative doodads. (For those wishing a vicarious trip to La Serenissima under even more mysterious and foggy circumstances, have a look at the Julie Christie/Donald Sutherland film Don’t Look Now.)
