Is it true that those little arches between buildings indicate a marriage between the families from each?
That’s one of reasons I’ve read about, for the presence of arches. The other is that they are simply structural support devices, akin to buttresses.
And the second photo is taken from Calle Larga looking north towards Campo Santa Marina.
You’ve spotted both of them Bert! I particularly like that one looking toward Campo Santa Marina, and seem to see it frequently.
I can’t claim the same eidetic memory as Barb, but the first photo is in Ramo Primo dei Padovani, with a sign for Hotel Lux on the corner, looking out onto Calle de le Rasse.
Hi, Prodigal! Yes, now you know my little secret, I’ve never been to Venice in my life!
È un po freddo in Milano? Give Stormy extra water today, please. 🙂
Non, molto caldo! I too need extra, um, liquids.
Hah! You caught the deliberate error, Sono!! Of course I meant caldo. You take care of dear, crippled Stormy, and also yourself. I mean, if you shrivel up, who will take care of that little pole dancing pony????
Wow, some parts of Herberton look exactly like Venice!
I love it when I look at your photos and think “I know exactly where that is.” It takes me on an immediate flashback trip to Venezia. Thank you.
Good!!! I like it when I remember where I took the darn photos too, Barb! 🙂
I hope your camera takes good close ups, too! And, no need to remind you, just walk and look; I sometimes deliberately left the camera at home to be sure to do that.
Lovely details. And if you don’t look up you miss the delightful chimney pots. I’m looking forward to the variety of architectural details I’ll be able to get with my new camera.
