Shrine with electric light

Some of these shrines have an electric light inside which gives them a cool glow from a distance but you have to get very close in order to see who is inside. I love the brick wall with peeling stucco behind this shrine and the Byzantine Madonna inside.

Hi Annie!

This is a beautiful photo. It seems that the decorative bars enclosing the shrine sort of adds a bit of something to it as well.

I totally agree with you about the chipped stucco. I just loved walking around and seeing the different colors around Venice, chipped stucco or worn down paint and all!

Have a nice weekend!

Hey Kathy,

I agree with you - those metal grates or grilles (or whatever they are called) are so beautiful. And in Venice, even regular old bricks are beautiful!

You have a nice weekend too!

Just beautiful!
