“So this is Venice” my mom said quite innocently as we faced the Scalzi Bridge in 1999. I envied her passion and the unrepenting excitement in her voice.
When I was a kid, my mom told me about a magical city where the streets were made of water. She said that one day when I was older, I would need to visit the fabled Venice before it slipped into the ocean and was lost for good. Venice was a modern-day Atlantis, to me, and I had precious little time to catch it before it was gone.
I went with Chuck Bentley and The Electronic Theatre (for which we created The English Mystery Graphic Open and The Electronic Theatre Presents Promo) in 1999 and again in 2005. These pictures are from the more recent visit and remind me of how magical the world really is.
