Traveling is not just seeing the new…it is also leaving behind. Not just opening doors…also closing them behind you…never to return. But the place you have left forever is always there for you to see…whenever you shut your eyes. Jan Myrdal

 

Photography – Waterfalls

“Nature is the art of God.” Dante Alighieri

I never get tired of seeing waterfalls. Each one has its own path and its own power. Just like us!

Travel Photography – Venice – Bridge of Sighs

Bridge of Sighs - Venice

“We are all prisoners but some of us are in cells with windows and some without.”
Khalil Gibran

Venice is one my favorite cities. The people are charming, and I enjoy the hustle and bustle of activity in the canals and the architecture. The Bridge of Sighs, shown above, connects Doges Palace and a prison. It was designed by Antonio Contino and was built in 1600. It took two years to complete. The bridge allowed prisoners to get their last look at freedom in Venice, and it is rumored many would sigh while passing through the bridge…thus the name.
