Riva degli Schiavoni, Venice

I was drawn to the warmth of this scene along the river in Venice. Most of the places I have visited there have been elbow to elbow with turisti but they must have been in the shops or out on the gondolas as I happened by. It's been lovely visiting Venice this month. As always, the virtual trip has made me want to pack my bags and go see it for real.

On the Canali di Venezia

Venice at last! I've looked at Google Street View so many times over the years, hoping to no avail to see Venice. It was so exciting to find that the cameras have been there and Bill Guffey has taken us there for this month's Virtual Paint Out. There is a temptation to spend all available time just looking around but with the holidays coming up, I decided I better just get to it.
