Venetian Texture

Venice is one of those cities,
that seems to have been art-directed down to the square inch
to evoke the romance of faded splendour.
When Bill and I walk around in Venice
we find gorgeous details everywhere.
These often involve erosion
pipes and plaster
door signs
and windows,
everywhere -- amazing windows.
It takes a special kind of neglect   
to allow splendour to fade
so that it can blossom.


  1. I really enjoy the colours of the plaster and stone - as well as the windows and doorbells. Would be a nice coffeetable book!
