Sunday Selections :: 11

I missed out on the fun last week and even though I'm busy today pottering around getting heaps of jobs done I thought it would be nice to sit, take some time out and share some more photo's. If you would like to participate in this Sunday Selections, simply head on over to Kim's blog Frogpondsrock and follow the instructions :)

In continuing with the European theme, this week I am sharing some images of the magical and enchanting Venice, Italy.

Venice just amazes me. Totally amazes me. So you need to just imagine me sitting here at my computer with my mouth open peering at your photos and wondering what the buildings are like inside. What are the foundations like? And a zillion other questions.

Just beautiful. There is something about water which adds to any scene. And when it is an integral part of the scene the bliss is magnified.

I'd love to visit Rome someday. Beautiful.

Venice is one of my favourite cities to look at. Really old buildings AND water. Lovely.
Riding in a gondola is on my wish list.

Venice looks like an amazing place to visit. I can imagine myself peering out of one of the windows watching the world drift by.

Gorgeous. Just so, SO jealous right now. It's on the list. If we ever make it to Europe, it's on the list.

Aaaaah, Venice!! I hope to return sometime this year! Such a gorgeous place, isn't it?

The Bridge of Sighs was covered in protective wrapping when we were there, because they were renovating the Doge's Palace, part of a whole lot of work that was going on in Piazza S. Marco, but it was still magical.

Beautiful photos ;-)

I love Venice and hope to get back there some day - it's a photographer's dream. Actually, it's a dream. Fullstop. And you have captured it so well - that mystery and the history of the city as you slip along little alleyways and lose yourself in the watery labyrinth and stumble upon hidden gems, secret gardens, as all around you water laps against the stones. Really beautiful.

Oh beautiful. Like Kim, I'm trying to figure out how the buildings work.
