It was about two miles west of the Piazza San Marco where I spied that canal embedded between those red and yellow houses. I was standing on an arched bridge and was concentrating on holding the camera steady. I like the outcome, looks a bit painterly, not typical for Venice, but typical for Italy. 🙂

I was standing on the balcony of the Basilica San Marco where I could film the St Mark’s Clocktower with the two men, hammering the clock.
