MM 3-28 View from the Piazzzetta

We spent four days in Venice during our three-week trip to northern Italy in 2009 and walked from our hotel near the Rialto Bridge to Piazza San Marco several times. This shot is the view across the Venetian lagoon from the Piazzetta di San Marco which is an extension of Piazza San Marco and is between the Doge’s Palace and the Biblioteca Marciana.


View of San Giorgio Maggiori from the Piazzetta di San Marco.

As I recall, I had to wait 20 or 30 seconds for the gondola to arrive in the middle foreground of my shot. The seagull on the left, though, was just luck!

The church across the lagoon is San Giorgio Maggiori. It was designed by Andrea Palladio and was completed in 1610. The island is also called San Giorgio Maggiori.

This is my entry to Leanne Cole’s weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Go to Leanne’s website to see what other photographers are doing in monochrome these days.
