    But beware John (and allow me to say the following)(and forget about Dan Brown), there are 2 ways to approach Venice, the good and the bad.
    First the bad: go there in the middle of July (heavily overloaded with tourists and often too warm) go straight to Rialto Bridge and then follow the main-turist-steam to Piazza San Marco, together with crowds of Americans and others. After that you are feeling exhausted, even though you cath the feeling, thinking you have seen the main-thing of Venice, but you haven't, instead you have destroyed the way to get the city under the skin.
    The Good: find a little hotel outside the main attractions, if you come to the airport, then hire one of these old shiny original maghogany water-taxis (with a heafty wonderfull engine, and its going at perhaps 40-55 km/h on the plain shiny water, and in the sunset its the ultimate arrival) and let the city grow out from the water.
    Avoid all the main attractions, find the outskirts at first where the ordinary people still are living, Dorsoduro, Castello and Cannaregio (the first 2 are the most exiting), drop into the small humble restaurants and cafés in the lazy areas, find the gondols that are transporting people across Canal Grande for 50 cent, while you are standing upright - 3 or 4 gondol-crossing-places there are, and first of all walk your feets totally dead. Sit down at Campo Santa Margeritha (Dorsoduro), buy a pizza-slice each in the shop at the west-side, sit on a bench at the square together with the local people. This is the quarter where most of the students are living. Dig out the "ordinary" living. Venice has its own life away from turists, and its relativ easy to find. You just have to focus your mind at it.
    Walk around in the city until late in the evening, where the light only comes from the ancient street-lamp (forget about crime etc. never heard about it). You will get rewarded.
    And one day you have to get up early and visit the fish-market at 7 o'clock in the morgen, allready at 10 it begins closing down, att 11 its all cleaned, and you barely notice what a huge and wonderfull life there was going on in the previous hours.
    Later on you can see all the fancy highlights, but to me its not the most interesting. It is finding the mellow and yet still forcefull soul of Venice.
    Its just still there. Its seldom, and its in a totally uniq city.

    Great series, Maggie. Not much of a fan, but at 72 years old that's impressive. May we all age so well. - John

    Do it! I've been vegetarian for about 45 years now. It's a good way to live.

    Maggie, Dude's Steak House?! What about the vegetarian plan? Backsliding already? Sir Paul would be disappointed. I especially like the first picture.

    I mainly use Silver Efex Pro. Sometimes I try OnOne Perfect BW. I don't recall on these, but probably SEP. Both are very good.

    Silver Efex Pro 2 and the GR are a match made in heaven.

    I really enjoy all the great old structures we have in downtown Chicago. The lines and shapes and perspectives are pleasing to my eye and they render in such lovely gray tones. I particularly like the way people, especially individuals, look among these massive forms.
