Romantic Anniversary

By LynneJoyce  
The title was chosen because it is our 18th wedding anniversary and almost a year since we visited one of the most romantic places in Europe - Venice - for Carnevale. Night time and romance seem to fit together well (especially now as our wrinkles don't show so much at night) so I have chosen a selection of night shots taken in that wonderful city. All were hand held and only one - V9 - had the benefit of the LED light that I purchased there (I forgot my flash).

Anyway, may I take this Valentine's day to wish you and yours a year of love, romance, peace and happiness, and I hope that you enjoy at least some of the shots included in this selection.

My favourite here is V9, for shabby chic.

Well, first of all, Happy Anniversary, Lynne! Grin And what a super collection of images from our trip - doesn't seem twelve months ago, does it? I can remember you with that LED was like a car headlight it was that bright! Shame about that chap in the red coat in V11 spoiling the shot, though...Wink

Not only the night and the lights make this series so romantic, my favourites are those that have those charming reflections, that repeat the lights 100 times.
