    • Thank you. If you scroll back through the blog there are other shots in this genre.

      • I’ll do that when I get some time today. Thanks. >KB

  2. Oh, Ron, by the way, the poem I wrote for that picture you took of the Venice ghetto walkway will be posted on the 17th with a link to your site as you asked me to do. Best>KB

    • I am looking forward to seeing it. It was an interesting walk because it is one of the few areas of Venice that is both worth seeing but not crowded.

      • Well so you don’t have to wait here is an advanced copy. Thank you for the inspiration. >KB

        Suppose One Day You Were Here?

        Suppose one day you were here,
        Between the labyrinths of the canals of Venice
        Where lies the maze that is her streets,
        Those that lead to your beginning,
        To those that lead simply to nowhere
        And could both be the same.

        The twists and turns that make no sense
        When opening on broad bright squares,
        The alleyways and Ghetto
        Covered paths leading into darkness
        Unsurpassed by night that seems like day,
        Takes you back always into its past
        Of the Dodge’s palace and might of its city-state
        That could have outlasted time itself
        Except for it is sinking down into the Great Lagoon.

        It will claim the wretched poor as well a rich;
        Merchants who from their homes
        Filled with art of beauty from an age
        That bid the city farewell to disappear
        Beneath the weight of its own hubris
        Not even time would disregard as its sin.

        Do not think you would escape without your life
        Mortality is not the toll for coming here.
        This is the place like no other who’s tax on living
        Is the expense of your small and useless soul.

        • That is definitely about Venice.

        • I’m glad you liked it. Thanks. >KB

  3. Great set, Ron!

  4. I like your abstract stuff. Maybe you could go pure abstract, all grid and geometry for a while, or do some proofs, then return to your street scenes, with all that life, nuance and energy.

    Of course, maybe not. You probably know what works pretty well for you.

    • I don’t think I could go full abstract because there are so many other possibilities out there, especially when I travel. However, those who get published seem to stick to a single genre. Something to think about.

      • Ron,

        I appreciate your work, so keep doing what you do.

        • Expect to see some new photos from Maui as I will be there next week. Over the weekend I will be posting some older stuff. One a reblog and the other a redo with some previously unpublished images.
