PhotoHunt: Joy

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Joy."

There's so much amazing architecture in Venice, palaces and churches that I love to see. But it also brings me joy to find these charming little neighborhoods, especially when they have a happy and colorful shrine like this one, dedicated to San Antonio (St. Anthony of Padua).

Thank you for sharing Venice with us. You make me want to visit there and also appreciate the next best thing through your shots. The colorful shrine is a bright spot in the attractive neighborhood.

your photos are gorgeous. the colourful shrine adds a nice touch to the charming neighbourhood.

Hi Annie, this place is so cool. I love the bright colors of the flowers and shrine. Even the umbrella matches the color scheme. Seeing this wonderful neighborhood would make me smile and bring me a lot of joy.

Thanks so much for this feel good post. Have an awesome weekend.


Hi Annie --

One of the things I really like about your Venice photos (and writings) is to see how you really look to have found time to smell the roses in -- and notice the small details and aspects of -- Venice. Put another way: Your views of Venice are so not obviously/"quick and dirty" touristy -- and so much the better for it. :)

Very colourful and joyful :-)

I love that place!! I went there again in October and spoke with one of the residents. Very friendly! There is a rental for tourists in that corte. I hope to stay there one day : )
Have a nice weekend!

What a nice interpretation of the theme !


That's a beautiful shrine.

Have a fabulous weekend.

I agree entirely. Sometimes the little things you notice bring as much joy as the famous tourist sights. Gorgeous!

These are beautiful. They are so colourful and joyous :)

What an enJOYable area of Venice, a place at the top of our travel list. It will be fun to try to find places like this when we get there, next year if not this year.

Well taken care little shrine. Small flowers in their cute little vases. :D


What a charming corner and shrine. You do find some wonderful little places in Venice, glad you share them with the rest of us!

Such a lovely find amid the beauty of Venice. I especially find St. Anthony dear to my heart! Thanks for posting. m

Venice..I would love to visit, but your photos are wonderful too...
