Time for another Throwback Thursday! This photo, entitled Hotel Metropole, was captured in Venice, Italy in October of 2009. It is one of my favorites from that trip.
When I took the photo my focus was on the red and white mooring poles; but what I love about this photo is the way my eye makes its way through the scene. Behind the mooring poles we have the private dock for the Hotel Metropole – quite a nice way to arrive in Venice in my humble opinion. Then my eye wanders down the sparkling canal to the people (parent & child) crossing the bridge, and then beyond to the palatial homes in the distance. Venice holds so many stories and is one of the most fascinating places I’ve ever visited.
