When our paths cross on the board Donald, I know I'm up too late, unless of course you're traveling and perhaps in this country for a visit. I have a friend in the Netherlands whom I'll be visiting in early September and when we contact one another on Skype it is invariably her getting ready for bed as I enjoy my day or me getting ready for bed as she gets ready for work. It is about that time...
I wanted to comment on these photos before doing so. I love them both. That the second was taken with a long, slow lens from a moving boat makes it all the more impressive. But then I've really enjoyed all the images you've posted with this unusual lens. As I mentioned, it was stumbling on one such image that led me to your photostream where I searched out all of them. That is a strange, marvelous lens.
I love the first photo as well. The tight composition with the two boats, one sharply rendered, the other softly blurred against that gorgeous backdrop. It is a long time since I last visited Venice but these distinctive facades stay in my mind. I also recall vividly the pedestrians rushing to work in the morning along narrow walkways between buildings at a pace that was remarkable for someone leisurely enjoying the place. Venice surely is one of the magical places on this planet.
Now to bed... Thanks for posting your work!
