This is a wonderful sequence. Your photos draw me right into your beautiful world. I especially like the bibliophile!ReplyDelete
Love these ever so casual Venetian scenes of everyday life...ReplyDelete
Can life ever be "everyday" in Venice?
Oh, I love the laundry! Wish mine looked like that!ReplyDelete
It's so nice. What a scholarly place!ReplyDelete
(Not having to look out for careening if that's the word vehicles MUST have something to do with it.)
Ich ziehe das erste Photo vor.... Immer eine Frage der Farbe fürReplyDelete
Wonderful, wonderful work! Just beautiful. I love the every-day-ness of it, the Sunday-ness of it. Perfection.ReplyDelete
Love the hat with the wide red ribbon. Someday, I hope to enjoy a leisurely read of the Sunday paper but for right now, I manage an article or two before being summoned to play and tie shoes!ReplyDelete
Very nice Merici, That first photo sets the stage nicely for this leisurely Sunday post. Good to know the Gondoliers get to read their paper too!ReplyDelete
Always a feast for the eyes when I visit. BTW Do you still have your other blog?
loved the reading series, esplly the one titled LOST !ReplyDelete
I love the shots of "the readers" they are so evocative - just the kind of scenes on which to base stories!ReplyDelete
Seven I think. This was such a fun idea. Sorry to hear about the storms.ReplyDelete
applause applause...I love the whole conceptReplyDelete
I love these headlines!ReplyDelete
You can't have gelati for lunch!ReplyDelete
Are you mad?!
The LAUNDRY!!! How extraordinary! What a pallet of colour and line ... I am enchanted.ReplyDelete
Love the 1st picture . laundry in Venezia ..so romantic and glamourReplyDelete
and the "mendicoli"? there will be in a theme?ReplyDelete
nice shots as usual ;^)))
Great reading post, Merisi! ;o) Happy Day ((HUGS))ReplyDelete
that bookshop with a gondola of books is a true Venetian landmark.
In Venice the mundane takes you in, and its beauty casts a spell.
the mother of this lot:
Laundry turning into art, that's how life's supposed to be, isn't it? ;-)
Sally Crawford from London:
Strolling while reading, I found that most interesting. ;-) I can't think of any other place where it's done, not in pedestrian zones here in Vienna.
Yes, the colours! Later in the morning, the sky turned a brilliant blue. Imagine.
We walked for hours that Sunday morning, and had a hard time letting go, even the thought of driving to Florence was of little comfort for a while. ;-)
Oh, I remember those times!
I trained mine to "read" the Sunday funnies, several pages of colored comics kept them busy for an article or two for me. ;-)
Thank you, Constance!
Still have the Strawberry Fields,
but it's not linked right now because I have not found any time to update it. :-(
He looks like he's lost, doesn't he?
Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah):
Oh yes, lots of yarn to spin in there. ;-)
I found seven one time,
the second time around only five. :-))
Thank you, Sandi! :-)
Thank you. :-)
Only before lunch! ;-)
Enchant, that's what Venice does to you! ;-)
"Romantic and glamourous",
I love that! :-)
The Mendicoli church will come up soon!
Thank you! :-)
Wonderful glimpses of a historic city.ReplyDelete
An I am SO very honoured by the mention!!
Fantastic exercise in people watching. I could study these for hours, wondering what people do, what they are thinking, where they are going.....ReplyDelete
Over from David's. Great dedication too. ;0) And I WISH my laundry looked like that!
Thank you for always being out there for us doubting bloggers, could well be that without your encouragement I'd given up on blogging some time ago.
I hope you will be able to get away and treat your family to a Venetian holiday soon!
Venice and Naples have the best light to expose laundry at it's best! I think one of the delights of Venice is walking and sitting among Venetians themselves, they are very special to me.
Exquisite! Your images are so soft, painterly even.ReplyDelete
The reading sequence is most evocative.
I want to shake these people and tell them:ReplyDelete
PUT DOWN YOUR PAPERS!!! you silly people
YOU'RE IN VENICE FOR GAWD'S SAKE
! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
I read while crossing the street in New York...
An accident waiting to happen
Charming! What a wonderful collection. Good eye!ReplyDelete
I am always delighted with your storytelling sense and your pictures. I feel like I have had a peek into Vienna through them.ReplyDelete
I love these shots...ReplyDelete
... although reading while walking ended up sending me to urgent care one day...
... it is an enterprise that requires great caution.
Whooopsie, sorry, that last comment about reading while walking was me.ReplyDelete
