in which this light looks good on you
Here are the last couple of pictures from our trip to Venice. At least, in terms of digital ones. After Rome, I didn’t really feel like taking a lot of pictures, though. It was weird but at an estimated midpoint through the trip, I kind of… stopped taking pictures. I bumped into my friend, Sonny, at the Kent Williams exhibit at Blanc about a week ago. He had been on a trip to London, and at some point, he also stopped taking pictures and just chose to “take it all in,” so to speak.
I don’t think I can stop taking pictures, ever, but it’s nice to stop and smell the roses once in a while.
The light in Venice is marvelous. It’s a treat for people who like color-grading their photos or videos. These pictures were taken on a cloudy day. I added a blue exclusion layer, much like how I made my icons when I made them for LiveJournal.
This iconic sculpture by Marino Marini called “The Angel of the City” looks outward to the water from its place at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. It was first made in 1948 with a detachable penis because of blushing ladies. (!)
On our last day, we ditched our bags at the train station and my sister and I hurriedly went out and sat by the water, because when you are in the midst of beauty, you must never forget to stop and pay attention.
