THE RETURN TO VENICE
Yesterday it was time to say goodbye to my first group at Lake Maggiore – not to mention my beautiful wife Luciana Franzolin – and head back to Venice to meet with the second Insight Vacations Picture Perfect group with Sharon Tooman as our Tour Director.
After a wonderful Magical Venice tour at night last night, I made it a point to wake up early and catch the first rays of the sun. The old Golden Hour where the orange-red colours are more prevalent.
I am glad to be back to Venice, as I can revisit some places for the second time, giving me a chance to maybe get a few better shots than before. And, of course, waking up early allowed me to move around the usually tourist-packed streets of this beautiful city and see it slowly wake up with the morning light.
More gondolas, more weddings, but I especially enjoyed the photo of the old man in St Mark Square. He had an air about him of elegance and confidence, dressed in his 40s suit, he walked with his cane and his little dog and seemed to not care that I was taking his photo. Enjoy.
