We’ve heard you either love Venice or hate it. We definitely fall into the former category. We spent the day wandering around and getting lost, weaving back and forth across bridges that spanned small canals and large ones. At one point we found we had crossed the Grand Canal without realizing it. We discovered the Rialto Mercado quite by accident and found ourselves away from the hordes of tourists gawking at the basilicas and taking over priced gondola rides. We were suddenly in residential neighborhoods and the streets were blissfully empty.
The morning rain gave way to afternoon sunshine. Venice is a photographer’s dream.
Here are just a few of my shots from today.
