Some images of Venice. The first one was taken behind the god Mars' at the top of the "Stairway of Giants" in Palazzo Ducale. This magnificent palace is the former home of the Doges (sort of the appointed nobleman President of Venice) and was mostly built during its reign as a world power in the 14th and 15th century. The rest are ubiquitous beauty shots. I love the interplay of colors on these buildings.
