In search of Monsters - Vencie, Italy

I have just returned from a much needed two week vacation in Italy and England. ...hence my posts about my monsters running the blog while I was offline. I am back and am now going through over 2,900 images that I took while adventuring. Over the next several posts I will have some highlight images that I will like to share with you. I plan on doing some more targeted postings relating to what I discovered on our adventures... but I have many images to go through first.

Today I have for you a look at Venice, Italy and its neighbor, Murano, Italy. I highly recommend travel and I can't express how amazing and awe inspiring I found Venice. There are monsters on everything and so much incredible reference everywhere you look. These images are just the tip of the iceberg... but I do not want to bore, so here is a taste of Venice...

Hope you enjoyed a taste of Venice. Next we head to Leeds and York in England. But don't worry, I will be returning to Venice eventually... I have some specific work I want to do in response to the things I saw and experienced there.

That is all for another exciting Wednesday on the blog, see you back here on Friday! Until then...
