V2 is Trev and I am wondering which was my glass there Trev??Smile

I like the way that you have cropped this to include the gondola as a a date and location stamp of authenticity. Nice image.

They are certainly acting the part well SmileSmile
I also like the inclusion of the gondola, but find the colour on one side of the shot draws the eye away to that side - would be tempted to try removing the colour there

Two excellent images, Lillian, excellent lookalikes in V.1, and not a bad impression of Trev in V.2 Wink Carol

They look good Lillian, well captured.

Nicely done Lillian, and a good chuckle to start the day.

Two good shots Lillian but L & H not as colourful (or pretty) as the norm for Venice. Trev looks happy.SmileSmile

Stan and Ollie were worth their euros though Lillian. They certainly played to the crowd. Great capture of them.
I think that the little one Trev is holding is yours. Was this the night he deserted us to get drunk on our own. Claimed he had to pack, hehehehe. Moira

Looks like Trev is also acting the part, Lillian. Did he have a collection tin in front of him?
Must admit, didn't associate L&H with Venice somehow...

I took a few images of Laurel & Hardy which I thought were quite reasonable until I saw this excellent shot, Lillian, - hoped to upload at a later date, though they aren't posing for my camera like here...may still upload sometime! Smile Quite a good capture of that handsome chap in V2! Wink I think the glass with least in must have been yours....

My word...they're spitting images of the real ones, aren't they?? Excellent capture, Lillian Smile

In V2 you've got Trev holding your glass making it look like BOTH are his and like he's a total wino...tut!

A collection tin Lillian ?
Were they Scottish by any chance ?
And like how you got Trev do do all the ''work'' for you girls.
And did Moira take her drink out from the bottle ?
Good shots.
But so many questions here !!
