|Black lantern within St. Mark's Cathedral|
Photography is forbidden in St. Mark's Cathedral. However everyone around me was taking pictures. The peer pressure was too much and I broke out my camera and started shooting. You have to shoot quickly and you cannot have a tripod. A big tripod and a slow photographer would attract too much attention from the understaffed guards. A discrete photographer with a high ISO and a steady hand is able to come back with a few good pictures of this incredible historic religious building. The mosaics are breathtaking, truly magnificent. Please enjoy.
