PhotoHunt: Water

A charming piece of street art in Venice showing The Baptism of Christ. I love how the artist carved those squiggly lines to represent the water.

This carving is very small and can be found above the entrance to a home, in between the street number and an electric light.

A carving of John the Baptist can also be found on this unusual cube-shaped vera da pozzo (well head) in the campo behind the church of San Giovanni in Bragora ~

And here's a well surrounded by water in a flooded campo. I wasn't able to get close to this one to see if any saints were carved on it.

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

The campanile of San Marco is the tallest bell tower in Venice and is a strong vertical that's visible from many parts of the city.
