Rialto Vantage Point

photo by Bryan Kemper
This should be a familiar view for anybody who's ever stopped to admire the Grand Canal while crossing Venice's most famous bridge. 
I once heard the travel writer Rick Steves mention that the top of the Rialto is known by locals as "Venice's air conditioner" - because on hot days you can usually find a cool breeze there. 
When my friend Bryan took this shot, he was not looking for air conditioning, as it was a very cold, damp day.
