This week's PhotoHunt 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~
Thanks for visiting and have a happy weekend. You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.
