venetian street

Venetian Street
May 2008

My iTunes: Violon by Poulenc

This is possibly my favorite of the pictures I've donated. Even though Venice is gorgeous and it seems like it would be impossible to take a bad picture of Venice, it can be hard to get a really nice shot. There is an "unnamed" place that I visit relatively frequently that had bare walls for a long time and they recently put up some pictures of Venice. While I'm happy to see the large expanses of blank wall covered, you can tell the pictures were not taken with a photographer's eye. I wish they had taken me up on my offer to give them some of my photos...

The auction ends tonight at 5:00, so I can post the results with tomorrow's picture.

Yes, this is another of the three French songs that I am starting to work on. After tomorrow's audition that is. I am feeling much more nervous than I'd like to let on, which is a strange feeling for me because I don't get nervous very easily. 2:40 p.m. tomorrow seems to have snuck up on me since surgery.

And speaking of surgery, I can sit down! I was so busy running errands yesterday that have been put off for a month that I didn't have much time to sit and I completely forgot to mention the good news yesterday! Thank you all for your prayers! Sitting is more wonderful than I remembered!

Christy,
I LOVE THIS PICTURE! And I'm not just being nice because you have been so kind about my work. I really love it. I think it's my favorite of anything you've posted thus far. I'd be very curious to see it in it's original, pre-photoshop form. (Perhaps email if you don't want to post it?)

I've always wanted to go to Italy. It's the dream vacation on my list of places I want to go. I always joke with Julianne that when we adopt our next baby (which we're talking more and more about lately) I want adopt from Italy. Or, if we choose China again, I'd like to see if we can pick her up in Italy instead of China. That's not too much to ask, is it??? :)

Wonderful shot! And how cool... a new appreciation for sitting down. We do take a lot of things for granted, huh.
