This evening when I opened Lightroom to review more of my images from Italy, it opened to the Venice images and two caught my eye. The first image was taken along one of the canals where several gondoliers had “parked” their gondolas and were discussing the value of the dollar and how it is measured in exchange rates, treasury notes and the amount of dollars held by foreign countries, or was it whose gondola was bigger.
The second image that caught my eye was of a window in Venice (below). The windows and doors of Italy caught my attention over and over again. We do not have windows and doors like that here. A couple examples follow. The doors were in Cortona.
Love the doors and windows … we do not have doors or windows like Italy or the homes that match them. We are so mass produced everything and cookie-cutter everything … and they are ancient and stone.
