I can think of no more enjoyable photographic pursuit than getting up in the morning and setting out on a walk around Venice. Twice my wife decided to go to Zoomba and left me to wander to my heart's content for a few hours. One does not have to venture too far to get away from tourists. It's also almost impossible to get lost in Venice. It's an island! Walk until you hit the lagoon, turn around and go off in another direction. It's a beautiful thing.
