There are so many interesting signs in Italy I thought I would share some favorites from my visit last spring. They were all very helpful.
Large crowds are to be expected in Venice. St. Mark’s Square is full of people taking pictures, waiting in various lines, shopping and sitting at tables eating a meal. There are pigeons too. But it’s really simple to escape the crowds and discover interesting places that are worth finding. When I walk near the water a gondola or small boat might drift by, which makes the scene even more memorable.
Speaking of bridges, there are many beautiful ones in Venice, Italy. From the famous (Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs) to a simple footbridge in Burano, you can enjoy them all!
A walk in Venice sounds nice…
For this challenge I’m going back to Venice for some scenes featuring the color red…
The last time I was in Venice I decided to take a walk that first evening. Since window shopping is so enjoyable (at least to me), I thought it might be interesting to see the shops at night and then plan to go back the next day. There were many glass objects on display and everything sparkled under the lights. Here are some pictures for this week’s travel theme of glass.
It’s the perfect time to look back on this year’s travel destinations. For me it started with trips to Dallas and Philadelphia in the winter followed by Anaheim in the summer, and then St. Petersburg, Chicago and North Carolina in the fall. I was also in Italy during May. Here is a sample of my 2012 in pictures.
Have a Happy New Year!
Windows can be an interesting part of a building both from the outside and the inside. When I travel I like to look for windows that are unique in some way. I always notice flowers that adorn a window, or there may simply be laundry hanging to dry.
I saw this display of lace in a shop window in Venice, Italy. It’s my entry for this week’s photo challenge.
