When I came back from my last trip to Italy I had fair amount of photographs stored on my hard drive. I spent almost 2 weeks exploring northern parts of the country, including Trieste and Venice.
I managed to took some very interesting photos of many historical and iconic places of Italy. But I think the featured photo the best represents Italy, at least from my perspective.
It was very hot afternoon in Venice, far away from popular and busy tourists spots. I stumbled on this tiny cafe Chiodofisso where visitors, all of them Italians, were taking their time having afternoon snacks and sipping coffee. No rush, no hurry just very slow and lazy afternoon. It felt right.

Getting lost, once again
Watching the remnants of the setting sun
Playing on the edge of the Adriatic Sea
Basking in the Adriatic sun among the canals of Venice
Eating breakfast in the sun on the edge of a canal
Exploring Venice once the crowds have departed
