Friday Favourites

It's been a while since I posted Friday's Favourites. I'll try and fish a few more out for next week. The first picture was taken in Venice, I think the guy on the bridge was taking a picture of the gondola while I took a picture of him, accidentally of course.

I'm afraid I cannot remember the location of this church

and these steps could have been anywhere! I'm guessing Capri, but I could be wrong.


  1. Good morning Valerie,

    I laughed about the first one! So, there are two people in this world that photographed each other at the same place & time. :)

    Thank you for an enjoyable Friday share.

    P.S. I have never been to Venise, but I saw a Venetian inspired "bridge of sighs" in Oxford,UK.

  2. I have a feeling that might be me on the bridge. I will have to look out the photograph I took of the gondola passing under the bridge with the charming lady in it.

  3. a gondola trip would be a great time....wouldnt it be cool to see his picture too?

  4. It is rather enjoyable looking at photos of warmer climes when winter seems to have arrived at last.

  5. Nice post, Val! Love that stairway.

  6. Venice is on my list of places to visit Valerie. Nice pics. :)

  7. Barb, somewhere in my collection is a similar one, hubs taking me while I snapped him. I must fish it out.

    Alan, I can't wait to see it.

    Brian, gondola trips are exciting.

    Pearl, Venice beautiful. We've been there twice. It's the sort of place you never tire of.

  8. Those steps are neat. It's such a nice picture, the pattern the steps make.

  9. LOVELY shares, Valerie!

    FUN first shot!!!

    And it's so ironic you shared photos of Italy today, because last night I watched one of my all-time favorite movies, "Under the Tuscan Sun."

    I MUST get to Italy one day!

    Thank you for sharing, dear lady!


    Have a stunning weekend....>X

  10. Hi Ron, you must... I know you would love it.

  11. I've never been to Italy but it does look interesting. It is also very photogenic. Funny how you both photographed each other at the same time.

  12. I have a 'people photographing the gondola I'm riding in' shot too! Such fun to do!

    I also tried to get shots of the gondoliers working and at rest. I'm not very good at the candid stuff though, so some pictures contain hard stares in my direction. LOL!

  13. Hello Val. Friday Favourites is excellent. I even spelled Favourites your way. Great pictures. Makes me look forward to warmer weather and going to new places. Hope you have a great weekend.

  14. You have traveled a lot my friend, how wonderful. Love the photos. Have a great weekend.....:-)Hugs
