Light and Dark: Photos

Enjoy these...my impression of Venice at night.


















"Where then is the meeting point?: where in mankind is the ecstasy of light and dark together, the supreme transcendence of the afterglow, day hovering in the embrace of the coming night like two angels embracing in the heavens, like Eurydice in the arms of Orpheus, or Persephone embraced by Pluto?" D. H. Lawrence from Twilight in Italy

Good Lord, these are all amazing photographs! I really love the ones taken later, darker, and the open shutter capturing the moving water. Really goof stuff!

Thanks, Christopher. To be perfectly honest, I was just using a basic point and shoot digital camera for these. It was more a result of being at the right place, at the right time. ;) Glad you enjoyed them!
