I’ve decided to join the party. I’m going to start posting some travel photos on “Wordless Wednesday,” but I’m running late, as usual, so my first post is on “Photo Friday.” (I made that up. And please notice that I did not fall prey to the lure of symmetry and call it “Foto Friday.” No, I will let the alliteration speak for itself. :-) )
So today’s subject is Venice, the city of my carefree college student days, and one with its own particular allure. Here we have a gondola in the foreground and the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore (featuring Palladio’s architectural beauty, the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore) in the background. The view is from the Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace), adjacent to Piazza San Marco.
