I agree, AP has very keep eye for details, he tend to read well between the images or within an image (similar to reading between the lines)

Ha, I mentioned it a Juice bottle, BECAUSE it had juice in it. Anyway, lets move around Venice and explore more. I need to catch the evening train and move to Milan by end of the day!!!

Walking and doing window shopping, I finally reached San Marco. It has many tourist attractions.

Beautiful Paintings on Entrance

The beautiful paintings infact tempted me to get inside and have a look. Wondered how beautiful it would be inside with such arts.

This was just diagonal to the San Marco Cathedral.

Watch the Clock dials again.

Some people who came outside the Cathedral started to pour Basmati rice (Yes, thats what was written on it!) and draw this HEART and some names inside. Seems like a peculiar wish or rituals. like our Kolam / Rangoli.

Main are the cathedral & camp bell tower. It is said we get a beautiful view the whole Venice from the top of this tower.

Cam Bell Tower

But since it was crowded with long queue, I gave it a pass.
Bangalore to Grenoble, Via Milano & Venizia - Le Moucherotte conquered...-sanmarcoqueue.jpg

I don't want to just keep standing in a queue, rather I would love to roam around and explore more of Venice.

Here are our heros waiting for the bakra. Hehehe, sorry for that. This is basically the Luxury boat called Gondala, that is very famous in Venice.

Gondala Service

After a small walk, I could see the real purpose of this Gondala Service.

Couples traveling back from heaven in Gondala!. Ya, Marriages are made in heaven...

No, I did not move around any islands. Was only on the main land and walking. I love to go to Murano and watch those glass articles being melted and made. Let me see, if I can in some other visits.

Some interesting buildings from Venice.

These were captured when I was aimlessly roaming around. I happen to reach the other side of Venice which is very lonely, no crowds, no tourists. And it was also a pleasant experience to be in such places.

One thing I noticed here is, even though the buildings are damaged, paints are peeled off etc, it looks something special for us, atleast for me it did. Do you notice it too?

As you all know, Venice is very famous for their glass work. They showcase beautiful works on glass. I heard that one can view the making of it if we go to the near by island called Murano. I did not had any intention to have a look. Probably next time.

But the whole of Venice shop is filled with these wonderful glass arts. Some of them which got my attention are posted here.

After roaming around the crowded streets of Venice, I moved to the lonely parts of the Venice. Its so silent, clean and green.

Less crowded streets

I happen to cross a park while walking and the view of it the moment I enter was really awesome. The lines of trees on both side with the little gap in-between to let the sunshine get into the park, lovely.

Scenic beauty

Bangalore to Grenoble, Via Milano & Venizia - Le Moucherotte conquered...-viewpark.jpg

At the end of the park I see this Statue

Flying Kanagi!!!
Bangalore to Grenoble, Via Milano & Venizia - Le Moucherotte conquered...-kannagiquest.jpg

Looked like the Kannagi statue on Marina beach in Chennai.

When I came from the other side of the Park, it was back to water. I see couple of guys doing fishing here. This guy was lucky to catch a fish so fast.

Fish-o(ye)-Fish

I was wondering about the no traffic signals streets of Venice and I notice this.

No-Entry Please
Bangalore to Grenoble, Via Milano & Venizia - Le Moucherotte conquered...-noentry.jpg

Yes, a No Entry for the boats on the boat "streets".

Next to that I also see a statue done like a person drowned in the sea. Possibly denotes some memories or event. Not sure.

It's a visual treat you have unfolded here MJ. Especially with the kind of photos and your eye for detail, this is a very enchanting thread.
