Scale

Greek Ship passing the Piazetta


I love moments like this: a giant cruise ship or ferry passing more normal-sized buildings, making all of them look like they're the wrong size. This Greek cruise ship was sailing through the Bacino, out to sea, past the Piazzetta by the Doge's Palace and the Basilica San Marco yesterday afternoon.

I'd forgotten what summer is like: warm, sticky, clear, bright, humid. I'm glad I brought my sunhat, but I may need new sandals.
