Sometimes, the metal-works we notice in Venice are so fragile. They look as though they would crumble with a touch that wasn’t gentle.
I’m grateful that they have survived this long.

All the photos were taken in the same narrow street — a street of delights, in more ways than one. There’s a nice little capitello too.
And, I was on my way to Pasticceria Colussi, to buy some fritelle, but they were closed!
I wonder if they also sell Turkish Delights (when they are open).
I love how they leave them there and let things age naturally – here in SoCal nothing is allowed to show any wear or tear, and I’m talking buildings, but it equally apply to women, too!
Now, that made me chuckle little Princess Seashells!
Having lived the first 20 something years of my life in SoCal I can agree.
What I’ve noticed in Italy is that women seem to be allowed to age gracefully and still be considered beautiful….like Venetian buildings.
Next spring May-June in Venice, by hook or by crook.
Hello, Gerard. That’ll be a nice time of year to be there.
