The memory of my little family sitting at a cafe located on the Piazza San Marco, listening to the live band behind us whilst we watched the many tourists around us creating their own memories, will forever be etched in my mind.
As we sat drinking in the atmosphere, complete with princess water bottle, each of us were simply another a face in the crowd enjoying the morning to those looking in our direction.
A Face in the Crowd in The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week.
This is the colour version of my earlier submission to Monochrome Madness at/by Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY.
What can I say, my heart wells up every time I look at my little girl standing up on the bridge rails, staring at a world so different to that which she lived in!
It’s the once a month “theme week” for the Monochrome Madness over at the blog, Leanne Cole Photography. This month the chosen theme is… FENCES.
The photo I’ve chosen, although technically not a fence, given it was taken on the island of Murano just outside Venice, I think we can all agree that rails and fences are pretty much the same thing, lol!
The little poppet in this photo just happens to be my Darling Daughter who was three-and-a-half on this, our first family visit to Italy. Both children took to Italy likes ducks to water, embracing the culture like locals.
This is a scan of a copy as sadly the original and its backup were stolen many years ago hence the slightly “off” feeling to it. Gives it an “old world” kinda feeling though don’t you think?
The memory however this capture evokes for me shall forever be etched in my memory.
