Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

Venice, 11th November 2012.

Rain and wind, and woken by emergency sirens in the middle of the night. Venice had suffered its 6th highest acqua alta (‘high water’) since 1872, and 70% of the city’s streets were under water. My weekend away with friends, already special, became an altogether different kind of experience…
