Picture of the Day – St Marks Square, Venice

This is a picture that was taken about ten years ago on a fantastic trip to Venice.

I absolutely loved Venice, it was like wandering around a Theme Park just made for me, full of interesting historical buildings. I would rather spend time somewhere like this than go to Disneyland.

On this particular trip, in November, the weather was very kind to us. It was sunny and bright and although only 17 or 18 degrees centigrade, that was a lot warmer than back in the UK.

St Marks Square is one of those magical places. I remember from a young age seeing pictures of Venice and feeling very familiar with it, like I had been there before, which I hadn’t. I thought that when I finally visited it, I would find that this strange feeling would be dispelled, but instead I felt even more strongly that I had been there. The place felt so familiar and I had no problem navigating the rabbit warren of streets and walkways.

I hope you like this picture.

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
