Fondamenta dei Mori

Fondamenta dei Mori

This Cannaregio shrine is close to Tintoretto’s house and Campo dei Mori, the campo with the four turbaned statues embedded in the walls.

As you can see, the shrine has a very reflective glass. I took about seven photos before I finally got the image of the Pieta relief inside – it looks kinda spooky and cool.

Very spooky...and very cool. :-D

The green door in Castello and this pic are my favorites. Oh, and the church floors. And the one with the ivy. *sigh* They're all wonderful.

The image is in the glass? Wow that IS cool! I like the reflection of the buildings also.

Thanks Jill!

Girasoli - no, the image was behind the glass. It was so weird though because I could see it but the camera couldn't - I had to keep moving and taking pics until I finally got it.

Oh too cool! I love it. Photo number three is amazing!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Annie, You really found some very unique things to photo while in Venice. I thought these photos were very different and interesting, but I'll have to confess that I'm a real whimp when it comes to spooky stuff. That's seems so funny coming from someone who is basically fearless about traveling solo!

Kathy, I'm a wimp too about things like scary movies or books or ghost stories - I avoid them completely! I didn't really think this shrine was spooky, it was just that it was hard to photograph and then ended up looking so strange.
