Today in Venice - some photos

Sunshine and high water in Venice today, and a man pretending to be a shop-window mannequin.

I was out and about experimenting with my new camera (a Panasonic Lumix G2).

The high tide had gone down but St. Mark's Square was still mostly flooded - I cut across the dry 'causeway' in the middle of the square but access to the duckboards was blocked by a metre of shallow water... it took some patience and ingenuity to cross the gap dry-footed. Tourists were paddling bare-footed.

A man amusing himself in the Sisley shop window. No audience other than random passers-by.
