This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Cage(d)."
Birds for sale in a shop window in Venice. Seeing animals in cages makes me sad. These little guys look very crowded in there. I hope they ended up in better living quarters later on.
When looking through the archives trying to find something for this theme, I noticed that some of my Venetian street shrines look like cages. Free the saints!
The statue inside this shrine is Santa Teresa di Lisieux. She's sometimes known as "The Little Flower" or as the "Saint of the Little Ways," and you've probably received an email about her (it's been floating around the web for years).
A couple of other photos of this shrine are here. It has a beautiful purple marble frame around it.
You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.
Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend. Happy Spring!
