Venice: Mind Where You Step

Back in early October, I posted a story about German freelance photographer Sebastian Erras’ project Parisian Floors which documented his peregrinations around the French capital. Now he’s at it again, but in Venice. Based on these beautiful images, it appears that he wandered widely and captured some amazing floors. I think that I have a few of the same photos in my own archives from my early trips to the city, including the one above in Café Florian on Piazza San Marco.
