ready to emerge
from the morning mist
Scents of Coffee
the hissing of a steamed-up espresso maker,
the comforting noise
of a spoon laid on a saucer,
stimulating olfactory senses
and then the collective sigh
of Java addicts around San Marco,
savouring that first sip of black gold

What a calming, beautiful collection of images!ReplyDelete
I love the first picture. The light is incredibly interesting in this one!ReplyDelete
Thanks for my daily pictures!
it was very early in the morning,
the sun had risen above the horizon, but the air was still misty.
It's a strange phenomenon. When I enjoy your lovely photos, I always smell the coffee!ReplyDelete
Love your photography.ReplyDelete
lovely Venice pictures!!!
We had a good mist today. But no coffee so far. Just water and peanuts for me this morning.ReplyDelete
Merisi, with these photographs, you have made me enter a dream of a Venetian morning.ReplyDelete
How I would love to visit that paper shop. I'm wondering if I did actually visit it when I actually was in Venice so long ago.
My memories have become a bit like dreams....
Catching up on your posts -- so nice to be in Venice again! That facade of San Marco is one of my favorite memories of the city. And your capture of the sparrow -- outstanding!ReplyDelete
Thank you all for coming along on my dreams! ;-)ReplyDelete
To the reader who wrote about the Bridge of Sigh:
This is an actual photo, no collage, no Photoshop layers (I'd know how to do them, but I would not possibly have the time to create collages for the blog).
The bridge image looks the way it does because it was surrounded by scaffolding that had been used as a billboard, creating the "sky" all around illusion.
A wonderful evening to all of you,
Your pictures are really inviting...ReplyDelete
and make me dream too...
From my little corner though, I would swap Berlusconi with Kim Rossi, so that my dream is complete !!!
Lovely, like beautiful watercolours, elegant captures~ReplyDelete
Your photos always make me want to sit and have a lovely cup of coffee with you.ReplyDelete
Venise, like a dream, I love this town ! Have you seen my photos while november ?ReplyDelete
The coffee at Florian's bar is a good idea !
Wonderful week-end to you !
San Marco looks just gorgeous.ReplyDelete
A marvellous view in the misty morning of the Dôme of San Marco cathedral.ReplyDelete
gorgeous pictures as always...I soooooo want to go to that paper store!ReplyDelete
If I was a bird, I would sit up in those beautiful snowflake shaped things on top of that roof!ReplyDelete
Oh I love stamps and handmade paper. If I ever get to Italy I'll find this place!ReplyDelete
I gotta say drinking coffee in Vienna looks WAY BETTER to me any day of the week then in Venice.ReplyDelete
Where pray tell is the glass of water with spoon lurking over head?
Carol, that was the morning's paper with a picture of Berlusconi - and his silhouette in the coffee cup. ;-)
Oh, that gorgeous San Marco! Who says Less is More-- not me.ReplyDelete
Okay, I spent about 10 seconds trying to pick up that cup of coffee to take a sip...reality thy name is camera!ReplyDelete
one more week, and I'll take more pictures for you!
You are my kind of girl. ;-)
