It was a very pleasant morning walking around the island. On the way back we stopped at the cemetery isle, not entirely what I had expected. I thought to see crypts and majestic angel statues like at Highgate but I was surprised to find that some where indeed underground. Mostly they were large plaques in groups. It was very peaceful as these places go but it lacks potential for visual impact in a story.
We took the boat then again back to San Marco square to find it teeming with activity. When we had left so early in the morning, the crowds were sparse and those in costume were few and far between, some were even still dressing in side streets. By noon, there were posing figures lining the alcove along side the Doge's palace, some standing with the sea as a back drop along the edge of the docks and more milling about on their way to one of the many events staged throughout the city for the two weeks of Carneval. I found myself taking many more shots as we searched out some place, just away from the square where we could have a quiet lunch before heading off to our afternoon attraction.
