Another attempt at something a little bit different for me. I generally stick to colour, but I thought I would try converting a few of my images into mono.

Looking down the Grand Canal from the top of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy. Water traffic is chaotic here with Gondolas, Water Taxis, Ferries, Speedboats and even Rowboats trying to make headway in the crowded canal.

The buildings lining the canal are a fascinating mix of styles.
