abc wednesday - V is for "Venice"

The challenge—choose one image that 
says "Venice" to me.  Have to say, 
this comes close:  The campanile of San Marco, 
reflected in the aqua alta that flooded
Piazza San Marco each day I was there last month.

  1. What a beautiful photo, Alexa!! Wonderful!

  2. If it weren’t for the lines of the underwater paving stones I would assume that the image had been brushed by a talented painter. You are an artist with a camera, Alexa.

  3. You have a painterly eye, Alexa. This one certainly is a beautiful reflection of your love for Venice.

  4. lovely photo! such a great capture to this reflection :)

  8. Wow! I almost missed this... just stunning! I have not been when the water was spilling into the few streets... what a beautiful shot!

  9. I love this photo! So creative! What were the dates of your visit to Florence? I was there in early November (different year) and we had no rain and no flooding. When we came back we were told how unusual this was.... but when we were there we did not realize it.
