Walking through Venice it's difficult trying to decide which way to look....up, down, eye level.
I can walk the same calle a dozen times and find something new at each level...each time!!Exciting for someone like me that is addicted to visual stimulation....
a wild ride!!

But I thought some of you would like to see an extreme before shot.
I usually don't mess with images as much as I did with this one.....

On November 21st Venetians celebrate the Feast Day of the Madonna della Salute.
In 1630....fifty years after the terrible plague of 1575-1577, the disease gripped Venice once again.
Doge Nicolo Contarini made a public vow to erect a church called the Salute, asking the Virgin Mary's
divine intervention to rid the city of the plague.
Today on November 21st thousands of worshipers cross the special bridge, erected for the celebration, to give thanks and ask the Virgin Mary to keep them in good health.
We hopped on the direct boat to Salute...I looked up and the vaporetto was close on our tail and larger than life...
