I’ve been invited to take part in the “Five Photos, Five Stories” challenge by Jude of Travel Words. The challenge is quite simply to “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
Here’s my fifth and final photo
It’s another ‘sit back and watch the world go by’ view today, except I was standing this time. The view from the Rialto Bridge in Venice captures so much of the hustle and bustle of the Grand Canal. There are gondolas taking tourists around, water buses full of locals and tourists, water taxis and small motor boats which locals use as we would use our cars. At the side of the canal there are busy restaurants and boats dropping off people and goods. If only there was a cafe on the bridge, with a view of the canal, I could have spent hours just watching.
Today I would like to nominate Carol of Wanderings of an Elusive Mind and, breaking the rules a bit by nominating two people, Hilary of Hilary Robb. There’s no obligation to join in, it’s just if you fancy it.
