So many things to see, walked around most of this trip with my jaw slack, and camera shutter popping.  The full gallery can be seen here:  http://jsgrey.zenfolio.com/p341921917

This was a rainy day, coupled with a full moon and high tide, St. Marks Square was predicted to be underwater by 3 feet – while that did not happen, it was more like 4-6 inches.  Venice is sinking…really.  When you hear the history of how it was built, it’s quite understandable, but nevertheless just really interesting. 

We attended a glass blowing exhibition, walked, and walked, and walked, took many photos of the incredible alley ways and ate great food.

by the way, this last photo i’m really proud of – it’s an old confessional from St. Marks Church for which the square is known as St. Marks Square.  This was handheld (as they all were) at 1/4 – of a second on the shutter.  one freaking fourth!!    at iso 6400.  While the quality of this camera is NOT that of the Canon 5dM3, I was really happy I took it instead of the heavy equipment.  You have to know this room is wayyy darker than the photo suggests.
