Venice, Italy

Piazza San Marco -- Busily taking snapshots, I was not aware that my rather unremarkable frames of the piazza could later be assembled into a larger collage. I just had to tolerate the angular inconsistencies and to draw the sky over the 9th-century Palazzo Ducale, which assumed its present form in the 14th century.  It was hard to imagine how the tall, singular bell tower could ever collapse and not take the square or anyone with it, but that was what happened in 1912.

This photo was taken with the Canon Pro70 digital camera.
