Lagoon Magic, Venice, Italy



  1. the bell at the top of campanile san marco. over touristed for sure, but worth a trip to the top if the line and wait time isn’t stupid long.
  2. the north side of the island – on fondamente nove. wandering in the light downpour made the whole experience a certain kind of magical. the seaweed squishing back and forth against the boats and stairs that lead into the sea. sigh.
  3. abandoned broom and the cemetery at San Michele.
  4. a quiet passageway bursting with texture and patina.
  5. children’s bookstore – on campo s provolo. Near San Zaccaria.
  6. the doge’s palace and san marco square at dawn. the most perfect time to see it. maybe 5 people walking around.
  7. details. Venice is the queen of details.
  8. details of a wall in the inside courtyard of the doge’s palace.
  9. my feet in the inside courtyard at the doge’s palace.
  10. gelato in the rain at campo san zaccaria. a lovely little hidden church. light a candle, breathe in the centuries of damp salt air.
  11. an art exhibition along the grand canal at the hotel ca’ sagredo. the artist is lorenzo quinn, and the piece is meant to reach people and educate regarding climate change and the rising tides and how they will effect the world and most definitely Venice, herself.
  12. lemons. even the morning’s produce delivery is darling.
  13. atop campanile san marco. a lot of people, a bit of magic.
  14. marzipan. very Italian. very almond. very much not my jam – but the craftsmanship is lovely.
  15. details from a walk.
  16. a passageway on san michele. the very mosquito infested cemetery island. worth a trip with adequate layers.
  17. notice the gondolier meet-up in the doorway? chiesa di san felice.
  18. typical venice side street. get away from the crowds (which can be tricky), and this city will charm charm charm.
  19. composer igor stravinsky and his wife, vera. buried on the cemetery island of san michele.
  20. textures. always the most nuanced and stunning textures.
  21. victorian era grave on san michele.
  22. a little bit of graffiti won’t get this stunner down. close the shutters, drink your espresso, drink in the soft salt air off of the lagoon – venice, she’s got her hooks in you. you got it bad and it feels so good.
