High Tide... oh my Goodness! That's a very clever take on the theme, Leslie! I'd like to go there, too someday. I have some friends who have been and they all say it does not have a very nice odor. Would you agree? Or does the beautiful just trump that?

Now I never thought of that - I have some very suitable shots I could have used. Good thinking.
Have a dry shod weekend.

I always thought that Venice would never get flooded. I was wrong. Gosh.. luckily it was not so high as to cover up the whole place.

They are build a wall to hold back the tide, I wonder if that will work

One never thinks of high tide in Venice, does one? It is lovely but I think I will stay to the drier places in Italy while I am Prime Minister!

Absolutely gorgeous. You are SO creative with the photo layouts, and the colour choices for the borders are always perfect. I too will have to check out photohunt.
