A few memories from Venice….part 1

Ncanal 2 by day
Dear Shaded Viewers,

Venice by day or by night has  to be one of the most beautiful cities, almost like a fairy tale. If you have been following me over the past few days you know that I went to Venice on Saturday and came back last night. I'vealready posted images from the international seminar, Diana Vreeland after Diana Vreeland but here ar e a few personal pics.

I was at the synposium for 8 hours, in between there were several short breaks. I know a few of the speakers for probably more than 20 years so it was a pleasure to see them again.

It is a rather sad memory but in a way sweet that Katel, Harold and Alan and I were all at the synmposium for Diana Vreeland after Diana Vreeland. Katel, Harold and our mutual departed friend, Stephen di Pietri all worked for Diana Vreeland in the 80's.  Katel, Harold, Alan and I planned the service in NYC in 1990 for Stephen di Pietri. An early AIDS casualty and dear friend to the three of us. Harold mentioned Stephen several times in his talk and we are sure Stephen was happy for that from up above.
