Annecy, France

Annecy, France

Sometimes called the Venice of France, it is a vibrantly colourful city poised on the edge of Lake Annecy. Once part of the county of Geneva, it became part of the House of Savoy in 1401, which was conquered by France in the infamous Revolution, though it changed hands a few more times before settling down in its current département (county) of Haute-Savoie. Like most of France, it’s drop-dead gorgeous, full of colour, life, and food!

  1. Aw thanks! I love photographs, but more than that, I love the story behind the places I photograph. It’s not enough just to take a nice photo and be happy that it turned out well. I think that the story behind the subject is just as interesting as the subject itself.
