Wandering Through Venice – Part 2

Well I admit it…  I have a horrible time finishing projects…  In my mind things appear so much clearer and organized, but when it gets right down to it, I simply don’t have the time to do things as perfectly as in my imagination.  In saying that… I bring you the remainder of my Venice photographs, in their scrambled, rambling glory…  I promise to do better with my other Italian cities…  Enjoy!!

www.thearbitraryswoon.com - In the Venice market we found a vendor selling horse meat.  Also note the cool green door... many of the door knobs are centered on the doors rather than placed to the left or right side as we do here in America.
