Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.
Benjamin Franklin

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Beautiful, a lovely ride to witness and I adore the champagne-coloured reflection in the water, bravo Eric!

Tu es romantique, tu as fait un tour en gondole, moi je suis souvent allée à Venise, mais je ne suis jamais allée dans une gondole! :o) Une très très belle photo, belle lumière!

@mo.langel: Merci beaucoup, Mo ! Oui, sans aucun doute un romantique ! Ce doit être le patrimoine français mélangé avec mon éducation latine. Un tour de gondole, notamment avec une jolie dame à votre côté, est quelque chose vous devez faites ! ... ; -)

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Here, too, you found an angle that blends well the touristic with the architectural! I wonder what do the Venetians think about the "invaders" (that means the hordes of tourists)?

17 Aug 2009 1:52pm

@Japanalia: Thanks very much Gabriella! Actually they hate them and I can understand their point of view to some extent. The hoards of tourists severly disrupts their daily lives..... ;-)
