la serenissima: vancouver's love affair with venice || destination photographer

yes..i have a membership to the italian cultural centre here in vancouver. why? well, not only do i get the benefits of 10% off at the restaurant, discounts for language classes, but i get to be in the know of all things italy, in and out of our city.

so when i received an email about an upcoming venice exhibit and if anyone in vancouver had any treasures of venice to share, i immediately thought of my large 24 x 36 framed canvas print.

it was really cool to see it with all the other venice lovers treasures at il museo..

two of my dear friends, darlene & lani, accompanied me to the exhibit..and then we went next door to la piazza dario restaurant..and had a lovely bunch of drinks, appetizers and pasta AND dessert among us for a little celebrating.. :)

i loved how SLOW everything was at the restaurant..i love that about italians..its about enjoying and experiencing… once i remembered that, the night was absolutely refreshing.
