Thought I would change our direction and travel north and east to Venice this week. These two photographs are probably my favorites of Venice. The weather was perfect this day, absolutely perfect. Be sure to check out Skywatch Friday for more terrific sky photographs from my e-friends all of the world. We had over 350 participants last week. I know you will enjoy.

The Torre d'Arnolfo - bell tower atop the Palazzo is 308 feet in height. This tower contains two small cells, that, at different times, imprisoned Cosimo de' Medici (the Elder) (1435) and Girolamo Savonarola (1498). The tower is named after its designer Torre d'Arnolfo. The solid cubicle shaped building is enhanced by the simple tower with its Lederle clock. The large, one-handed clock was orginally constructed by the Florentine Nicolo' Bernardo, but was replaced in 1667 by a clock made by Vincenzo Viviani.
Please be sure to stop by and visit other participants from around the world at MY WORLD TUESDAY, you won't be disappointed. I truly enjoy the great variety of photographs from all around the world and hope you will find them as enjoyable.
