Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti

By TrevBatWCC    
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! Wink

Techie stuff – see Exif

Lovely composed image. Great colour, gives a good sense of space between the two sides of the canal. I would have thought it was narrower. Would just love to go there............Sandy

A very fine Venetian landscape, Trev: just that bit different to the usual by featuring the building as the main subject rather than a shot down the canal.
With all nest wishes for your forthcoming trip and hoping you get many more like this.......I look forward to seeing what you bring back.
Regards, Ronnie.

If this is bog-standard then the bog is of the most estimable quality!

Hope you have a wonderful time.
