In Venezia IX

Three windows in Dorsoduro and three San Polo doorways. After a sunny, warm day exploring Venetian museums and Looking at Life in Venezia over the last 10 Centuries, I went back out for a walk this afternoon. I wonder what's been seen out these windows and I wonder what's gone on behind these doorways in Venezia. None let on.

For a city so vibrant during the day, it's almost soundless at night, except for the occasional footsteps and the abbreviated bells on the half and hour. I guess life continues on behind the shutters and beyond the three Venetian doorways.
