Gondolas of Venice, Italy

Location: Venice, Italy (45°26′N 12°19′E)
Date: 6 March 2005; 8.05am
Camera: Canon 300D with kit lens

Venice is another romantic place, though unlike Paris one feels the presence of tourists everywhere. It is quite fun to spend a couple of days walking the narrow lanes and admiring its old (crumpling in some cases) buildings. It is also a place full of photographic opportunities especially if one happens to be there during the annual Carnival of Venice in the early part of the year (normally around February). Another great photography opportunity is the islands of Burano and Murano, with their colourful houses. These can be reached easily by ferry from Venice.
