Venice, Italy

This was taken in Venice, Italy.  I swore I will not take a pic of the gondolas and the gondoliers because I  refuse to act like a tourist while in Italy. Guess what? I was not able to resist!!! And who could say no to this scene?

Oh my! I wouldn't have been able to resist that picture either. Just seeing that makes me want to visit such a place. Sneaking in alittle tourist behavior can't be all that bad is it? :o)

I'm so glad you succumbed to this scene!  I said the same thing about taking photographs of gondolas/gondoliers when I was there.  Guess what...I came home with not only beautiful photographs, but postcards, and other souvenirs of them!  They are part of the allure, the beauty, the way of life of this intriguing city.  Please share more of your trip!  I'm salivating wanting more, my keyboard has become my drool bucket!  Please, please, please share more?
Best,
Judith
