"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

Walk Around Venice Part 1

From my walk around Venice

Probably I could have taken 1000 photos in one morning walking around Venice. There is just that much to see. Venice is so busy and frenetic. Even early in the morning, there were so many people out and about. In two hours, I saw a Church with a Priest standing out front, a fake beggar (I swear the guy had legs that looked in great shape, yet he was walking around with a shawl over his head and all bent over with a cane) and all kinds of transporation vehicles on the city of water. 

Note the beggar in the background

Musicians playing. Garbage heaping.

Some graffiti, but compared to most places we visited, it was very limited.

  1. Musicans are wonderful. Must have been a fun morning. Did you wish you could stay longer?

  2. I did, Heather. Thanks for asking.
