What a great place Venice is. It has such a different feel to the city mainly because of its canals, history and architecture. Of all of the cities I have been to, I wouldn't mind getting lost there. Every alley way has something different, and I found myself just stopping and looking around in delight. Some of the architecture is simple, but much of the city's architecture is ornate, really ornate. It's architectural style, is the Gothic with Byzantine and Ottoman influences.
We were staying in St. Mark's Square with some of the most ornate architecture in Venice. As I wandered around one night, I saw the statutes on the top of St Mark's framed by this arch. The inclusion of the yellow glow from light fixture made a nice contrast to the blue-hour light.
