PhotoHunt: Lights

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Lights."

A few scenes from Venice...

A glass and light baptismal font in the Basilica dei Santi Maria e Donato on the island of Murano. This church, built in 1140, is one of the oldest in the lagoon, and the font is modern. I like the contrast.

Another glass and light display, this one is at the San Marco vaporetto (water bus) stop. Gave off some wild looking blue reflections~

Here's an example of what natural light can do to the surface of the canals~

Beautiful pics! I love the reflection in the water, natural art! Happy Holidays my friend, and happy photo hunting :)

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, love your photo collection for this week's theme. The baptismal is really beautiful. Would you believe I have never seen that display at the San Marco stop at night. I wish I had now because the light effect really makes a big difference. It's wonderful. And I love the natural light on the lagoon. Almost looks like a modern art painting.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!

sandrac:

Beautiful! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, Annie!

Ewok:

Oh, I love the reflections in the canal! Fabulous movement, light and colors!
Happy Holidays!!
Peace

Happy New year to you as well :)

As well as the orignial trips in 85, 86 and 92.

Am going again in Spetember 12 :)

Hey, I am on facebook with a few of the old crowd, please add me if you are on there. :)

It says I live in San Gimignano.

ann:

All great photos. Love the reflections on the water.
Merry Christmas!

I'm not participating in photohunters this week but wanted to let you know how much I love these shots. Merry Christmas!

YTSL:

All three photos are great, Annie! The Venetian tourism board should hire you -- or reward you in some way! :)

YTSL:

Ooops... my comments didn't appear when I tried before. So here's writing again to say that your three photos in this entry are all really lovely. :)

Beautiful color reflections ... and I love the glass mosaic font. So unique!

Buon Natale!

Annie, Your photos this week are all so beautiful. Makes me want to book a flight to Venice right now!!
Wishing you and your family a beautiful and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

All very beautiful :-)

I had fun with light theme. Look like you did to.

Merry Christmas

That reminds me it's too long since I was in Venice!

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours. Have a lovely time.

Beautiful lights ! I know Venice from summer but have never been there in winter.

Anne:

Hi Annie, thanks for your note :), I hope you are enjoying your holidays too! I bet your nephews were excited for Christmas!! I miss being active in our blogging community, must say. I *hope* to find more time for blogging in the new year, or at least posting something on a more regular basis, even if it is just a photo or a meme or whatever, just to stay in touch with everyone.

I am loving being back at school, intense though it is. I have a field placement starting in January at a local church (not my home church though, they don't place students with their home congregations...would be too weird!)

Hope you and your family have a very Happy New Year!!

sandrac:

Gorgeous photos, Annie! Hope you had a lovely Christmas and that you'll have a very Happy New Year!
