Peg Leg

Bird's Eye View for
this guy, a one legged
bird standing on
a railing.

There must be a story
here, and his balance
 is amazing.

Lunch at Scomas in SF.

View from Fort Point

View from Fort Point
under the Golden Gate
Bridge in San Francisco.

A bit of a tide, so I waited
for the wave to hit and
took my shot then.

Weathered Window

Older and wiser and
weathered. This window
is part of a very old
structure along one of
the Venice Canals.

Watercolor image
overlay to add to the
lack of detail and
suggest we just enjoy
the color and contrast.

Monday AM in Florence

Sometimes we are reminded of just how good
we have things in USA. Here's to those of you 
who remember when you could do this without 
getting in trouble with the neighborhood watch 
group sending you a warning.

More Bookstore

My Friend Carol would still be in
Venice if she had wandered into
this bookstore. Papers, calendars,
cards and tons of old books.

Bookstore Steps

Walking down the narrow side streets
 in Venice and we found a wonderful
bookstore. Such a great place to prowl
around and see everything. We had to
go back a couple of times to just poke

The isle of Lace

Hop on the Ferry and take a ride
to the lace making capital of Italy.

Each of the islands seems to
have a specific trade for most
of their area.

These fans are made of lace and
then hung on the door frame for
display. Just lovely!

Wall Art

Can guess how
someone waters these

Balcony railings on
both sides of the flowers
should give you some clue.

A bit funky, but fun!

Lovely scarves tied
on a rail for all to see.

One for you, and one
for me!

Just lovely!
