The featured image

Several people have asked me about the image at the top of my pages.

I took this photo in the summer of 2008, during a trip by boat along the Brenta Canal, which goes from Venice to Padua.  This was the area where the Venetian nobility built their holiday homes – Palladian villas on a grand scale.  This photo shows an installation by the Italian artist Mimmo Paladino in the gardens of the Villa Pisani.

Go here for more video detail (not mine) of the exhibition.
