For Lillian, who sadly couldnít make it to Venice Taken on Friday, my last full day, this is looking down onto the Piazzetta San Marco from the outside balcony of the Basilica. When I told Lillian Iíd been inside the Basilica, she asked me to dedicate an image from there to her Ė so my first upload from Venice is especially for you, Lillian. It wasn't as sunny as this the whole holiday - the day before it snowed!
Whenever Iíve been to Venice before, thereís always been queues a mile long to get into the Basilica, and hating queuing, Iíve not been in before. However, I was passing at around 10:15 a.m. on Friday, and there was no queue, so just walked straight in! As busy as it was around that area, I think most visitors were there for the Carnival, and pre-occupied with photographing everyone in their costumes.
