A moment in Venice

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Melinda Fitzgerald

One magical winters morning on our long awaited holiday in Venice we succumbed to our older son's pleas for a gondola ride. The good humoured shouts of the gondoliers, the glimpses of geranium pots down lonely lanes and the reflections of light all around us captured the essence of the Venice we fell in love with.

Location: Venice, Italy
