Out of the Jurisdiction: Venice VI



Back to Venice for another window reflection.  Do you know the tale about the unicorn under the bridge?  Neither do I, but there should be one . . .

Very cool, Jack! I think I would have missed this one as I walked by.

I took a snap of a unicorn sign at a horse farm years ago. It was placed at a very old bridge but I never looked under the bridge!

Hahaha, FAR better to let us each imagine our own story of the unicorn under the bridge!!

Wonderful shot Jack! Your photos remind me of how much I loved being in Venice.

What a fantastic reflection for the day, Jack!! Such beautiful masks -- now for a story to go with them!! Have a great weekend!

Karl Demetz said...

Venice was very inspiring to you :)

William Kendall said...

Beautiful detail, Jack!

Kay said...

Oh, it's a complicated tale. . . the unicorn took a short ride in a gondola, looked up at the wrong time, got caught under the bridge, stopped water traffic, and the mess was resolved by a city official named Figaro who had been interrupted while enjoying a cannoli at an outdoor café. Cannoli leftovers were impaled on the newly-freed horn and the filling decorated its face. Or something like that. Famous folk tale. ;-)

Love Kay's tale, haha:) And love the details on that mythical head, those are fabulous only-in-Venice reflections!

Small City Scenes said...

Awesome!!! I saw a pair of Unicorns under a bridge......or maybe it was......never mind.MB

Dianne said...

Ah ! So pretty Jack ..... delightful capture.

If there is any city worthy of a unicorn under the bridge story, Venice is it, if unicorns can swim, or the canals are shallow.

Small City Scenes said...

I thought I'd better leave the rest of the story up to individual imaginations. Sometimes it is better that way.
I mix compost from the dairy and some potting soil--mix it up and plant away. but you are right they do need a lot of water. MB

Great looking mask.

Great reflection of the bridge and the whole effect has the dreamy look of Venice. Very nice.

The unicorn under the bridge... I have already read this somewhere!

Reader Wil said...

You could hand out give-aways for the best unicorn story.
Fun reflection.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Well done Kay! Venice is a treasure trove of reflections, nice one Jack.

Kate said...

Kay is so clever! If I was't so tired I'd give it a whirl, but running around Santa Fe is exhausting.

I missed a couple days are are trying to catch up.

As a middle schooler, my son won a declamation for a rendition he did about an unicorn so its image brings back fond memories.
