  1. These are some of the most beguiling images of Venice that I have ever seen, Paula. You have excelled. Maybe the last is my favourite but they are all beautiful. Thank you! 🙂 🙂

  3. These are all wonderful images of Venice. The colouring of the first and last shot is beautiful, the hues of red and yellow, and green of course.

  5. I was so eager to join in this time that I forgot to appreciate! You’ve just shot Venice up to the top-ish of my travelling list again. Maybe after Scotland’s western islands. The first and last photos are my favourites for their wonderful composition, and the last one for its many interpretations of “continual”

    • He he, I like doing that 😀 Venice is eternal and it will be here for you. It’s good to know that you can’t be without Europe for long. Thank you, Meg.


  6. Well done Paula. Brilliant.
    All 5 words for venice and in such different ways. I like the first as it’s a favourite spot, but St Mark’s Square is excellent too. In fact, they are all brilliant.I feel as though I’m back there right now 🙂

    • This means a lot, Debbie, especially from you 🙂 I can see you in my mind wandering the streets with your camera(s) hanging on your neck looking for angles you haven’t done before. This is what Venice does to me, makes me look further and further and always I see it with “a new set of eyes”. Thank you.


  7. Almost like visiting Venice. What a wet world! It is beautiful, but I can’t help but imagine how many kind of dehumidifier you’d need to keep the dampness in check. Glorious, ancient … and full of water!

  9. Of course that’s Venice.

    Top 3 shots are tops because of all the hundreds of photos that I’ve seen of that town, none are like these.

  13. Nice selection of pictures, Paula… this time all the shots, while depicting different concepts, relate to each other and match very well.
    Excellent job 🙂

  19. Hi Paula. I’m so thrilled to come across this post. I have just booked a trip to Venice for my family. Coming from the South, we’ve decided to see the new year in, in Venice – Winter in Venice. So when I saw your pictures, it felt like the universe was talking to me. I love your pictures and your interpretations and look forward to any others you may post. Chevvy.
