Red Flowers

Shrine in Corte Lucatello, close to the church of San Zulian. I love the red flowers.

There's an inscription on the alms box ~ CHI DONA AI POVERI DONA A DIO (Who gives to the poor, gives to God).

I love the color the red flowers add to this shrine.

I love that the shrine is surrounded by pipes and wires and chipped plaster.


What a lovely little shrine -- the Madonna's face almost looks metallic, although it must just be the reflection off a painted surface.

Very cool how the red flowers just pop - it is almost as if the shrine is in black and white with the red flowers standing out. Beautiful shrine.

That's a great photo - the texture and the red color of the flowers are very effective in creating a mood. m

Wow! the bright reds against the pastel background is so beautiful :-)

I love this adorable Venetian shrine with the little splashes of color.
