I love old architecture
Especially old buildings
Such stories they could tell

That’s quite funny, my husband has been putting up another log store today and because he has reused a door for the roof and there are old building stones at the base to shore up the fence behind, it now looks like a Japanese temple…
wonderful observations these are lovely images !
Thank you, and thank you for following me.
I’ve always thought my suburban semi could benefit from the odd balustrade or two…
Well, what are you waiting for?
Art is art and I love it. Great post.
Thank you! That’s Venice, eh?
Yes incredible views everywhere you look in Venice!!! How much longer are you staying there?
Right now, I’m home in Australia, Gabriana. My next trip will see me exploring Naples and other places in the south.
Can’t wait to see he female architectural “decorations”!
I’ll see what I can find for you.
Why always man ‘ s head ? Feminism was not born at this time !! 🙂
Bonsoir, Michel. Now, I have to find some photos of female heads, because, believe it or not, there are quite a few of them scattered around the city.
Perhaps it is a family gallery. Maybe we should redecorate and add our own portraits to the front of our house. We might start a new trend.
There’s just the incentive I need, to learn Photoshop!
You will have to check the rule book to see if doctoring your image is allowed when decorating with selfies!
Maybe I’m going off your idea.
Those heads are just where I thought they were, Yvonne. You’re an *angel* for posting the photos. The palazzo has two names, which is not unusual.
You and Bun are both into the fun of word play today, Bert.
This is just the information I need for my upcoming architectural project. Thanks for the heads up.
Thanks for my morning chuckle, Bun. I wonder if you have given us an offering this weekend?
I’m hoping to post something, although goodness knows what about. I’ve yet to think of a topic. 🙂
We’re counting on you.
Hi Yvonne – love the architectural details. Where I live in Corfu we have a lot of Venetian buildings and remarkably some of exactly the same heads.
Maybe they were made in bulk and supplied for various buildings? Would love to know the history behind them.
You live in a lovely part of this world, Jo.
Your comment conjures up a vision of an ancient assembly line of artisans chipping away to fill an order: “Heads~masculine, curly hair and beard, stern look”.
Look, kiddo, I’m nearly out of my place and the only architectural construction I ever want to do it to stack a weeks worth of dirty dishes in the drying rack without breaking my wine glasses. But thanks for the thought, anyway.
I do believe that is a most worthy ambition, John. Good luck!
With all the talk of dudes and dames, I’m still wondering who that central guy, in your photo, with the curly locks and beard and dead eyes, is supposed to be…
I’m pretty sure he’s not Leonard Cohen, Cynthia. But Gerard will no doubt correct me.🙂
Beautiful, and is giving me ideas on how to advice the local council when next they approve yet another golden arched McDonalds edifice.
Did Leonard sing about burning violins?

Power to you, Gerard.
Leonard sang about many things, I can’t recall any burning violins, though. Nor burning bridges, even before they’re built.
Dance me to the end of love with burning violin.
Aw, geez, Gez, you know the man better than I do! I’ll do better next time, I hope. And now, people will have to put up with me humming that all this long day.
In response to Lisa’s suggestion I was thinking if you’re going to modernise may as well internalise also …….. And I must keep this in mind for my next renovation project too 😀
You’ll be like the Martha Stewart of internal renovations!
Imagine!! 😀 😀
I think it would be fun to add some modern heads to a building. Lady Gaga, Mother Theresa, on and on, take your pick. We could let a few dudes in, too, but they’ve already taken up a lot of space on old buildings, so…
Now, that’s a fun idea. I’d sneak Leonard Cohen into the mix.
He’s definitely got the face for a building!
Be careful what you say! I’ll find out where you live …
I’d take him any day🙂
Lisa, maybe the heads of a dude or two could ornament your new kitchen somewhere somehow ….. perhaps an open shelf support or a shelf above your new window – imagine the talking point! 🙂

Yes, please do this. Imagine your blog post on the topic!
LOL, Pauline! Maybe it could be someone obscure, and therefore a conversation piece! I can’t believe you haven’t been painting!!! Are you just resting and fermenting creativity?
I hadn’t painted for 15 months! I got down in the dumps and when I realised why I ferreted around and found the necessary bits and have started again – but back to the beginning, you know, you have to learn to balance on the bike again!
Goodness. Sometimes we’re fallow and sometimes we’re in the dumps and need to get out. Glad you’re back at it!
