Subject 6: Pictures from Italy

In 2018 I visited Italy for the first time.  I was so taken with what I saw, especially the unique and startling city of Venice that I visited again in March 2019 for a week.  So I have seen Venice briefly in early winter and early spring.

About Venice Henry James wrote in an 1882 essay, “There is notoriously nothing more to be said on the subject…I am not sure there is not a certain impudence in pretending to add anything to it”.  In answer to those words even if I can say nothing new I hope to interpret Venice as I saw and experienced it.
