Twigs and Dedication

I'm participating in two PhotoHunts this weekend.

First up, the theme for this week's Saturday Photo Hunting is "twigs."

I took this photo this past November when the color of the leaves caught my eye. The more I look at it, the more I realize that the twig is tiny compared to the leaves. Must be stronger than it looks.


And next, I was happy to learn that long-time fellow photohunter, Archie (of Archie's Archives) has started a theme-based photo meme called Friday Foto Finder. This week's theme is "dedication."

As I wrote earlier this week, most of the street shrines in Venice are dedicated to the Madonna. But here's one that's different - this shrine is dedicated to Santa Lucia (St. Lucy) and can be found in the campo outside the church that is co-dedicated to her and San Geremia.

Cannaregio 271


Thanks for visiting!

Oh there's another one photo hunting blog. How much fun is that?!?

Have a lovely weekend.

The leaves are so colourful, and make a nice contrast! Both great pics. :) I'll have to have a look at the Friday meme. :)

Bel:

Love your photos. Haven't been inspired lately, but will try to hunt again. :) Happy weekend.

Interesting - did you ever find out why St. Lucy was chosen?

*******************************

Azahar, it's because the Venetians stole her body and brought it to Venice many centuries ago. Lucia is still there is a glass casket in the church!

I like the moss in with the leaves and twigs. Lovely shot for the theme. The shrine in your second shot is very beautiful. Happy Weekend.

I like both of your photos for the two themes. Did you know tnchick's father was murdered? Someone posted about it on the photohunt page on facebook. So sad.

Thank you for joining the Friday Foto Finders group. It is interesting to discover that there is another Saint worshipped in Venice. (I have been reading a lot of Donna Leon's mysteries lately so have become enamoured of the city from a distance)

i love the lights and textures of your first photo and the shrine is gorgeous.

Hi Annie, I love the mixed textures and fall colors on your first photo. Great for the first PH theme. And St Lucy is a very lovely shrine and perfect for the 2nd theme.

The Friday Foto Finders looks like fun too. I'm so tempted...:)

Have an awesome weekend and enjoy the big game on Sunday.

YTSL:

Yikes... so tnchick's Photo Hunt (and Photo Hunter group) has been split into three? :O

Of course far more shocking is the news of tnchick's father... So sad. :(

Nice theme for this saturday~
Happy Hunting~

Anne:
