@saeed: A pleasure. thank you, Saeed.
I am amazed by these buildings. I am puzzled as to why the buildings have been able to stand that long in water.

@Rags: Constant renovation I think. Thank you, Rags.
I too wonder if they don't suffer from the dampness. The art work on this building is wonderful. Great capture Michael.

@Marion: I believe there is always a problem with the dampness and flooding. thank you, Marion.

Il a été rénové depuis peu celui-ci... Il est tout clinquant !

@Tilala: Merci, Marie.
It's impossible to be original when photographing Venice. On the other hand, a good photo is always a good photo. And that's the case: a magnificent building very well captured.

@Betty: Thank you, Betty.
A real beauty, Michael ... I particularly like how you've given the viewer a peek at both sides of this masterpiece so that we can appreciate how it is situated among its neighbors.

@Ron: Thanks so much, Ron.
A fine palazzo, indeed! Not sure if I would want to live there though :-)
17 Jun 2008 12:08pm
@MadScientist: I would love to. thank you, MS.
And masterfully portrayed. Nice work, Michael. I remember Venice and especially being in St. Mark's cathedral on Easter in 1966 - an amazing and moving experience even for this agnostic. As climate change continues, we may soon have only such wonderful photographs as this to preserve the splendorof this unique city.

@Judy Andrus Toporcer: Thank you, Judy. Yes, it is one magical place and I just hope they get the flood controls in place before it is too late.
That is one, very valuable piece of corner real estate (if that's what you call the bottom of the canal).
How these buildings have lasted for centuries is beyond my comprehension. They must have elaborate foundations to have withstood the test of time and floods. This is a beautiful capture, Michael!
17 Jun 2008 12:39pm
@Judy: Thanks, Judy. I believe they are constantly renovated with the foundations restored as they are in Amsterdam.
Are you sure it's not your little "pieds à terre" in Venice? :-) Good job!

@vu@granby - Wolfgang: I only wished. Thank you, Wolfgang.

@MJ: Many thanks, MJ.
A fine architectural find!
17 Jun 2008 3:32pm
@Craig: Thank you, Craig.
This is a magical shot - a fine example of the quality and beauty our forefathers were able to produce. Don't get me wrong - I'm a lover of the modern, but we just don't see this type of craftsmanship today.
17 Jun 2008 4:30pm
@dobbino: I agree. Thank you, dobbino.
Stunnning! great job dude!
17 Jun 2008 6:21pm
@Emboy: Thank you, Emboy.
Really an elegant building. So "Italy" there in Venice.
17 Jun 2008 7:20pm
@Viewfinder: Many thanks, VF.
La restauration de ce palais est vraiment fantastique. Merci de ce témoignage. J'imagine tout Venise ainsi....
17 Jun 2008 7:33pm
@Evelyne Dubos: Merci, Evelyne.
Venice... I read about this place in a book, or I've heard about it before. I think some terrible/great event happened. If only I remembered...
Love it ;) Pretty place, like a theatre. What is the building anyway? Reminds of a art muesum as well because of the art work on the building. But from the water and boat maybe its something more simple than that.
17 Jun 2008 8:48pm
@Sammi: I don't really know what it is. But it could be a museum or even hotel. Thanks for commenting, Sammi.
Superb capture Michael. The art work is fabulous!
17 Jun 2008 9:22pm
@standley: Thank you, Richard.
A beautiful piece of architecture captured here. I hope it is still in good condition. I have heard many of the buildings in the Venice area are being vacated due to their structural state.
17 Jun 2008 9:58pm
@Steven: I've heard the same but this one has been renovated recently. Many thanks, Steven.
Good grief, I thought I'd commented!
This is a magnificent building, and you've captured it so beautifully Michael.
17 Jun 2008 10:50pm
@MaryB: Thanks so much, Mary.
Quel immeuble fantastique. Merci pour cette belle photo et pour cette aussi belle série !
17 Jun 2008 11:10pm
@Suzanne Labbé: Avec Plaisir. Merci.
Masterpiece is not an exaggeration! Wow! Great capture.
17 Jun 2008 11:45pm
@Tracey: Thank you, Tracey.
Docking the boat at the front door. Very cool shot.
18 Jun 2008 4:04am
@Michael Rawluk: many thanks, Michael.
Of course, the idea of renovation was excellent and the job done looks super (must have cost quite something!). It really brings to attention the lovely architecture on the facade of the building.
23 Jun 2008 8:34am
@Japanalia: I agree it must have cost a huge amount. Again thank you.
