We were in one the most storied and glorified cities in the world and I was suffering from languor induced by very hot weather and crushing crowds. One early evening after rain had cleared the air and the tourists had taken cover, I stepped out from our apartment to see the lights just coming on, reflecting in the wet paving stones; the air had freshened, the heat had dissipated and I enjoyed a leisurely stroll canal-side in the fabled city of Venice.

Rick has suggested I crop this photo a bit …
It does help to focus on the reflection, which is the stated subject of the photo … I also like the first one in that it gives me the feel of emerging from the alley and starting on my stroll, but that is, obviously, very subjective and a memory. Which one do you the viewer like best – top? or bottom?
