It’s not easy to get a good photo of the top of the splendid well head you can see in the courtyard of the Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti in Venice. This Palazzo, the home of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti, is the building you see on your right as you walk over the Accademia Bridge heading towards Campo Santo Stefano.
Here is the well head in question.
I tried various methods, such as holding the camera above the top and hoping for a decent shot. No luck! Then a Venetian friend invited me to a meeting at the Istituto, and from an upper floor I was able to get a relatively good photo. It’s not perfect, but it’s all mine … and now it’s yours.
