So….I thought for this last post of 2015 (or first post of 2016 depending on your part of the world) I would start off the new year with five favorite photos from each of my four visits to Venice. You know what is said about “best laid plans”. I started with my trip in 2008…my first visit ever…and couldn’t choose just five. So I will share the fifteen favorites out of the final keepers of 593. I don’t think WordPress would appreciate (not would you take the time to view) all 593.
So for your viewing pleasure and in no particular order are the ones I love the most taken the last week of October and the first week of November 2008 during my two week stay.
Dingo had an adoption center near my apartment so I got a daily “cat fix”.
I think I’ll call this color “Venetian Sky Blue”
Steps to reflection.

And even now I have failed in my attempt to chose only fifteen. In a future post I will attempt to chose only fifteen pictures from my second visit to what has become The City of My Dreams.
The only way to care for Venice as she deserves it is to give her a chance to touch you often — to linger and remain and return.
