[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
San Giorgio dei Greci is located in Venice by one of her numerous canals. The church was built in the mid-16th century. The bell tower was built on 1592. Amongst the treasures in this church are three icons which Anna Notaras, daughter of Loukas Notaras the last Megas Doux of the Byzantine Empire, brought with her to Italy before 1453, and she later gave to the Scuola de San Nicoḷ dei Greci in trust for when a church observing the Greek Orthodox faith could be constructed. These icons comprise: one of Christ in His glory surrounded by symbols of the four Evangelists and figures of the 12 Apostles; another of Christ Pantokrator; and the third is an image of the Virgin Hodegetria.
There are numerous pictures of this church available in the internet but I was intrigued by the rather unorthodox angle that I found during our gondola ride. The blue sky made a nice contrast to the stark white construction.
Hope you will like it.

Sometimes looking up can produce stunning images such as this. The two towers competing to the sky with the cross as it's reasoning. If the followers below would just practice there belief. The cross would then be amazing and have the power it was intended to have. Nice image to study.
