Venice detail

Venice detail

A detail of a handrail on one of Venice's many canal bridges. I wonder how many hands it has felt. What stories could this beautiful inanimate object tell?

The Beautiful Soul of Venice.

I spotted this washing powder packaging set into the wall in the alley opposite our 3rd floor hotel room. It amazed me as it would have required some effort to get it there. I could only conclude that the last time there was scaffold up for maintenance someone took the opportunity to instal this wonderful piece of art.

Cotopaxi on Laguna Verde

Cotopaxi on Laguna Verde

The landscape of Laguna Verde with the additional photoshop composition of the mysterious ghost ship 'Cotopaxi'. This ship has a long history shrouded in legend. It's been located in the Gobi dessert (see link). Also linked to the legend of the Bermuda Triangle. So I thought it fitting to continue with the legend.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zE19l1e02A

The Cotopaxi is the wreck of the Captain Leonidas near the English Narrows in the chilenian Fjords. The Channel is called Messier Canal. Next town is Puerto Eden, only accessible by ship or helicopter. Picture taken from the the Navimag.

Capitan Leonidas MV went aground on rocks in 1963 in the when the captain tried to sink it to claim insurance. The ´sinking´went wrong and he eventually went to prison and lost his captains licence for life.
