A requiem for Venice

they've trampled your roads
and now your glorious buildings are sinking
still they come by the busloads
walking, without thinking

I'm also guilty of that sin
and now for you, there lies a future grave,
under the ocean's final wave
so my sorrow sounds hollow and thin

the only thing that will last
is your beauty, unsurpassed

in the million pictures we made

[Canon EOS 400D, 50 mm, 1/100s, F7.0]

    Not gone yet, and still beautiful...despite of decay.
    The warm, clean colours are making this image really work.

    A very thoughtful artistic statement.

    Wonderful colors textures brought forward with that great light. The crispness enhances those details and the addition of the words creates a total package for the mind, heart and soul to savor.

    Well done,
