PhotoHunt: Wooden

This week's theme is "Wooden."

Venice is mainly a city of stone, marble and brick and such. But there are a few wooden things around town.

Many of the windows have wooden shutters, often green. I like the contrast between the peeling paint on the wood, and the peeling stucco letting the bricks peek through.


"Botti" are wooden barrels, and there are three of them painted on the sign for this restaurant. The sign itself is made of the top of a wooden barrel.

And here's one of the wooden barrels outside the entrance to one of my favorite places to eat. The wooden basket sitting on top of the barrel holds a big glass keg for wine.

Many of the street shrines are made of stone, but there are a few wooden ones like this nice carved one~

San Marco

Thanks for visiting and have a happy weekend. You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

Beautiful photos for wooden.

My entries for Wooden are here and here.


You always have such beautiful photos for each theme. I love the first one for the different textures.

What a fantastic set of beautiful photographs. I enjoy seeing your shots from Venice.


All of the photos in this entry give of a quiet air about them. Seems like you really manage to find tranquil as well as attractive places in Venice. :)

Such a great collection of photos and choices for this week's theme. LOVE the colors and textures in the first photo especially. Hope you have a colorful weekend!

Hi Annie, very cool photo collection. I love the colors in your first photo. Great composition and framing. The wooden barrel looks similar to the ones they use to mature Scotch in too. I love the details in that beautiful shrine.

Wonderful choices for this week's theme. Have a great weekend.

these are great choices. the shrine is absolutely gorgeous.

The first picture looks very colorful !

The wooden door is quite fascinating.

As I mentioned on another post (one of the 3 so far from Venice!) I love it when people travel there and post about it, but I still dream of seeing Venice in person one day.

Great photos for this week's theme! It makes me want to go back there!

Love that first old door!

A wonderful collection of shots. Funny how the first thing I thought of for the theme was Venice as well. I wonder if it is the contrast since there is so little wood there. Or perhaps it is just an obsession with Venice. hmmmmm

Have a great weekend, Annie!


Wonderful photos; everything about the first one is marvelous.

I love the first picture!! Nice composition.
