My last upload before going off to Venice, so here's a taster. Just your bog-standard shot from the Ponte dell’ Accadémia really, looking down the Grand Canal, taken when I went to Venice last year for the Carnival. The main building in the foreground is the Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti, built in 1565, and restored in the 19th century. Since 1999 it has been the seat of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere e Arti (Venetian Institute of Sciences, Letters and Arts) and frequently houses cultural events. I just hope when I go the weather's like it is here in this shot!
