Sogni veneziane su la ali di un gabbiano ...
“Venetian dreams on the wings of a seagull”...
I never knew quite where I was going in Venice, but just followed the canal, or became trapped by the canals with no way of crossing and had to backtrack. Probably not the best way to traverse the Venice Lagoon. My last evening in Venice, I accidently stumbled on Ponte dei Scalzi, "bridge of the barefoot [monks]," one of only four bridges in Venice to span the Grand Canal. The bridge connects the Sestieri of Santa Croce and Cannaregio. I set up my camera facing east in view of the dome and campanile of Chiesa di San Geremia, which contains the relics of Saint Lucy. Santa Lucia - virgin and martyr who was one of the earliest Christian saints to achieve popularity, having a widespread following before the 5th century. She is the patron saint of the city of Syracuse (Sicily). Because of various traditions associating her name with light, she came to be thought of as the patron of sight. Saint Lucy is one of my favorite saints, not only for her great faith, but her very name and remembrance is the very essence and luminance of my images. The original church was founded in the 11th century with the present version dating to 1760. After the sun set, I found my way back to my favorite restaurant, Hosteria Al Vecio Bragosso, for another amazing dinner. A seagull parted the Venetian clouds gliding along the Grand Canal winking at his paparazzo as he helped paint the pastel sky.
