PhotoHunt: On a Shelf

I like this theme. Gonna be fun to see what everyone comes up with. I'm got a few street shrines in Venice.

This shrine has shelves on each side with flowers on them. On the metal front is an inscription that says that the shrine was erected by Bello Angelo as an ex-voto (votive offering) in gratitude for the danger he survived on January 21, 1957. I'd love to know the story!

This shrine is sitting on a shelf.


San Marco 1455


This shrine has a shelf below for flowers. The inscription on this one translates to "Our Lady of Peace, Pray for Us."


Cannaregio 2685


I like these flowers made of glass beads. I bought some of these when I was in Venice one time.

The light inside this shrine is so big, it's blocking the view of the Madonna. I bet this one looks cool at night when the light's on.

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, I've been seeing on the news that there is a huge storm on the east coast. Sending safe thoughts to you, the girls, your family and friends and everyone who are in the storm's path. Take care.

Thanks Kathy. Everything is okay in my part of the state - rough times for so many others though. What a scary storm! I appreciate you thinking of us.

Beautiful pics I love the glass flowers :)
