My Top 10 Photos of 2018 (Part 2)

“Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can. I wish you Happy New Year and diary full of best stories ever written in your life.” – Laozi

Here is Part 2 of my 10 favorite photos of 2018. Seeing them together, I notice that in all the pictures there is water. This time not the sea (see Part 1) but rivers, lake and the canals of Venice. If I were accustomed to introspection probably I should ask myself why, in my favorite pictures, there is always water… Ah, it could be a good resolution for 2019.

My Top 10 Photos of 2018 (Part 1)

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” – Seneca

Also this year is about to end. I looked back at my 2018 images and chose the 10 that I like the most. Here are the first 5. Taken all in Sicily. And it is no coincidence that in 4 of these photos you can see the sea. In fact, in these short and cold winter days most of all I miss the sea… and the sun on my skin.

Gondolas moored in front of the church of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice, Italy

Venice – Gondolas

Thinking of Venice, Italy, one automatically thinks of Gondolas and Gondoliers. As a child I really thought that the Venetians would go to work, to school or go shopping on a Gondola. They probably did so in the past. Today the Venetians move on foot or by Vaporetto (Waterbus). On the Gondolas there are only tourists. Unthinkable to visit Venice without a City Tour on a Gondola and sharing photos on Instagram.
