PhotoHunt: Covered


This week's theme is "Covered."

I've got this theme covered with a few shots from Venice, Italy. Venice is a city that's covered with art, not just in museums and churches but in outdoor public areas too.

First is a covered street (the Ruga degli Orèfici) in the Rialto Market area. The arcade above is covered with frescoes. During the day, all the shops along this street are open and there are tons of people. I took this photo late at night when it was very quiet and deserted.


There are sacred images all over Venice, embedded in the walls of buildings. Here are a couple of statues that are covered with little umbrella-type things to protect them. You can see the Roman numerals MDCXXXI on the building (year 1631).



You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.

Beautiful photos, I loved the one in the Rialto market, and the umbrellas over the carvings, how unique. I can hardly wait to get there. I will make sure to visit the market and view that ceiling. Have a happy weekend.

Venice is such a great city you can COVER almost and theme there and as you said you definitely have this theme COVERED.

I love the first photo - the night lighting really shows of the frescoes.

Great shots for the theme, Annie. Ah, I've been feeling so behind on blogging, but it just seems computer is not a high priority for me right now. I hope to get back into it soon.
