When Bologna Canals Glow and Flow

My mental focus is on a Dutch Symbolism artist and the prevalent virgin/whore complex of the fin de siècle, so Italy has to take a bit of a backseat today until I get this magazine art column written. See? I can ramble on about more than just Italian Renaissance rustication. And they pay me! Now if only I could get someone to pay me to go on and on about rustication …

Anyway, as a quick weekly photo challenge entry — and a bit of procrastination — my glow-themed picture is a green, glowy and flowy picture of one of Bologna’s canals taken in August. As I’ve mentioned before, most of Bologna’s canals are now underground, but the city used to be a veritable Venice, or at least Amsterdam. Plus, there’s a bonus video taken that same day, with a bird flying artfully around and a bit of aural sensory experience.

    1. Thank you! I thought the video would give it that little extra. It was a beautiful morning and quite hypnotizing to watch.

    1. I actually miss the Dutch canals, especially the ones near me in Utrecht. And to be fair, this is pretty much the only one we really have.
