Looking down on the tourists

Frank’s theme for this week is ‘sculpture’. I certainly have no shortage of images to choose from to fit in with that, but I decided to go with this close-up from Barzaghi’s  1882 ‘Monument to Nicoló Tommaseo’, who looks down on the passing hordes with faint amusement from his plinth in Campo Santo Stefano in Venice. The detail is extraordinary.

The island of Burano, in the Venetian Lagoon, is noted for the bright colours that the residents paint their houses.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Slippery

A particularly interesting theme from Frank for this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge: ‘slippery’.

This scallop was on a display in the fishmarket near the Rialto Bridge in Venice. The contrast between the slippery flesh and the characteristically patterned scallop shells adds interest.

These carvings atop the Basilica San Marco in Venice are clearly not the originals, but there is plenty of intricate detail to appreciate, especially in monochrome:
