"Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go."
- Truman Capote

Because it is so beautiful and because it was the first holiday abroad we had together since 2003 and because I want to go back...

Venice photos

Wow - it looks lovely. Thanks for sharing the photos - which are excellent, incidentally. Are you and Taxloss secretly professional photographers? :)

Ha - it looks like it doesn't it? But what we discovered is that it is impossible to take a bad picture of Venice. You just can't do it. Even the blurred and out of focus and awkwardly framed look romantic and dramatic. Yep, it's that kind of place... is that your hamster in your profile pic btw? Cutie!

I would add that I am actually not that bad a photographer, and took all the shots that I do not appear in.

But it was the most wonderfully clear light.

Taxloss looks oddly like Horatio from CSI:Miami in the last pic. Don't you think? As if it was snapped just before he put on his dodgy wraparound sunglasses and cracked a bizarrely random one-liner about the dead body that's just out of shot, eg "She might have jumped off the bridge, but it's our job to get her safely to the other side." Actually that sounds more like something the black autopsy woman would say in one of her weird little religious chats to the corpses.

Just to clarify: I am in no way suggesting that Taxloss bears any resemblance to David Caruso in real life. Apart from being strawberry blonde. It's just that one picture.
