Lake Garda, Italy May 2007

I have been accused of overlooking Europe in my recent posts so here are some delightful pictures of a trip that I took with my mother a few years back. This part of Northern Italy is looking exceptionally photogenic, especially considering that when Father David returned from the same spot a couple of weeks later he complained to Mum that it had rained without stopping for a whole week.

It was a wonderful opportunity for me to get reacquainted with Venice, a city that has kept a special place in my heart since I first visited it at the age of twelve. I was particularly pleased with the pictures of the children playing with the pigeons in St Mark’s Square. I’m not a hundred percent sure about the etiquette of reproducing pictures of other people’s children but understand that, provided it is not for profit or the promotion of any cause and the pictures are tasteful, no-one is likely to object. As in other matters I stand to be corrected. I certainly don’t intend to emulate some sections of the press by making a distinction between photgraphs of poor children from far a way countries and those from nearer to home.
