PhotoHunt: Free Week

photohunterslogo

This week's theme is "Free Week."

A theme-free week so I'm free to post a few more photos from my November trip to Venice. When I saw this theme, the Joni Mitchell song, "Free Man in Paris," popped into my head...a great song about the joys of travel, so it fits.

I was lucky to have a bunch of sunny, blue sky days while I was there. I took this one from the vaporetto (water bus). Feel free to click to enlarge so you can see the colors of that building.

One of my favorite things to look for and photograph in Venice are the street shrines.

You never know what you will see in those canals....

The reflection in the canal is beautiful. Have a great weekend.

Beautiful shots and wish to visit Venice at least once more.

Venice is just lovely. marvelous shots.

"One of my favorite things to look for and photograph in Venice are the street shrines." - You don't say!

Btw - any clues as to the location of the shrine?

Ha Ha Bert. Yes I know I was stating the obvious.

I assume you want a clue not an actual location. Closest church is probably San Geremia (but I'll double check my photos when I get home from work).

Beautiful photos. I especially love the third one.
