Early Morning, Afternoon, and Night

The light in Venice is great all the time, but particularly in the early morning and late afternoon. It's also wonderful at night. Here is a collection of shots from all times of day and night.

I've said it before, I'm sure, but one of the most interesting images to capture is the reflections in the canals. Sometimes the water is like a mirror. Other times, there are ripples of color and light.

As you go around Venice you never know what you're going to find. In this series is a picture of pigeon feathers spread on the pavement, in the midst of which is a splatter of blood (look carefully). I know that Sea Gulls have a taste for pigeon, so I figured that this poor creature met its end at the beak of a Gull.

A few yards up the street my suspicions were confirmed, as you can see from the pictures.
