Venice doesn't always look like what you'd expect. The more I explored the city outside the tourist centers of Rialto and San Marco, the more I learned how many cities compacted into one Venice is really comprised of. Take this bit of Murano, for instance. If you didn't know this was in Venice, would it surprise you to know this was in Venice? For me that's one of the most pleasurable aspects of the city. It's both exactly what you would expect and precisely the opposite. All at once. And always picturesque. Even at its most seemingly unVenetian.
Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - aaluva - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!
