The amount of Variety there has been this week is quite extraordinary. I haven't seen a Volcano yet, but I wouldn't be surprised.
Fine picture.

And let's face it, we all want to ride on a gondalier when we go to Venice.

I know what you're thinking..."surely he means gondola?"...actually, no I don't ;-) hee hee.

Daryl said...

I am laughing, GBS, Venice's canals do indeed exude a heady aroma ..

Lovely angle on the shot, O Intrepid Traveller.

Venice is every bit as magical as you expect it to be and also surprising. I loved it very much when I spent a week there.

Looks like a busy, exciting place to visit. I chose V is for vegetables from my floating garden. I invite you to come see. -- Margy

venice is so close to a place beginning with 'w' that it will make me cry if this is a recent shot...

womaninawindow said...

Gorgeous picture, this one and the street shot.

CrazyCath said...

What a fantastic V. I'd love to go.

Sorry I'm late. Been sick. OK now. :0)

Daryl said...

Thank you all....

Holly, no it was taken in 2003 ... if I had been that close, I would have come to W for sure!

I love travel almost as much as I love photography....

Carolyn said...

Ahhhhh. Love Venice. Beauty!

TSannie said...

Very very beautiful photo - well, it IS Venice!

I'm dying for the next bridezilla chapter. And I hope the end of this story is that young man came to his senses and went screaming away from that be-atch. Can you imagine living your entire life with someone like that?

That fake wedding....unbelievable!

Two V's in one - great image!
