    A wonderful Sunday
    to all of you!

  2. Lovely images and great twist Love the Pachelbel

  3. Sez,
    this is one of my favorite places to visit in Venice.

    I am also in love with that angel.
    Isn't he beautiful? It was early evening when I took these pictures, with the light fading fast. I will have to get back to Venice, to take pictures in better light. I also need to find the artist who created him. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that he is a work by Antonio Canova.

  4. Lovely. Lovely. Lovely!

  5. A wonderful juxtaposition of the cello, the statue and the shadow. And a lovely rich chestnut colour of the cello. And evocative music behind them.

  6. A superb post for my Suday morning.
    I listened to and enjoyed all of them. The prof plays the violin so that I have seen many string instrument museums.
    This was such a delightful chanfe to automatic pops on so many sites.

  7. Love teh shadow of the angel on the wall behind the musical instrument

  8. the first image is simply lovely and SO well composed

  9. Love the shadow in the first shot. Wonderful composition.

  10. Britt-Arnhild - thank you!
    Make sure to visit this magical place on your next visit to Venice!

    Wandring Star - I am happy you appreciate it: I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out the right composition, bending and kneeling and generally making a fool of myself. I had the problem of poor light and - as usual - no tripod either. ;-)

    Arija - it's a wonderful feeling being able to contribute to someone's morning, thank you for telling me! :-)

    I am glad you appreciate the experience of being able to wander without clutter through more of my picture world. I love sharing it with you!

    Charles Gramlich - I was half expecting that you'd tell me that you'd love to steal away with the angel! *giggle*

    Jujita - thank you! It was such a wonderful experience and moment in time, I had to hold on to it.

    Marisa Perry Atelier ,
    welcome, Marisa, and thank you! :-)
