We continue to be drawn to Venice

It's been a while between posts but I'm excited to say I will be shortly in Venice - trip number six is very much on the horizon. We will be staying in the same red house we stayed in nearly five years ago. We lived there for a month then, and it was too short a time! This time it's only a fortnight but I think it will be like coming home.

The best thing about this next holiday? We have no plans again. In fact, we're thinking of cutting out a batch of things to do and draw them from a hat each day! I'm looking forward to taking a few thousand photos, as I always do. I love the canals - whether it's the Grand Canal or small canals away from the hustle and bustle - and I love the ambiance of the place. Each canal has it's own light, it's special colours, it's special meaning. And I hope I capture those in my photos.

I think I will take a tripod again and get out some nights and early mornings. I haven't done sunrise from the Rialto Bridge or Accademia, so I might try that this year.

Just being in Venice will be enough. It's not in the busy tourist times and it's a little colder, many places will be shut, but we don't care. It's our second home. And we love it. x
