Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal

Hint, hint!

Hint, hint!

Few years ago I was in Italy, in Venice. I fall in love with the city, I spent four whole days wandering through the small streets and canals, exploring hidden yards and passages. I was also collecting photos of objects and situations that seemed to me to be interesting. And now it’s the right time to show you one of the collections, which is called Bars and Grids of Venice, for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal.

    Forging must have been a popular industry in Venice at some point Katy !

    Metal is the element of my nature and anything built with it touches my heart, as does this exhibit of yours. Thank you so much for sharing this with me! I hope to make it to Italy some day. At the present I am hoping to go to Paris this summer. If you have ever traveled there, I would love to learn from you…? 🙂

      First you have to watch movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0211915/ and some other “Parisien” movies :-).
      Places that I love in Paris and which I always visit there (I am not going to mention Eiffel tower and other traditional touristic sights that are must see):
      Canal St. Martin (where Amelie from the movie plays with stones) – walk around the water or take a boat here, take a coffe and just enjoy the place.
      Montparnass tower – brilliant view
      Sitting on the stairs of Sacre Coer (take a lift up) and having my lunch there (baguette and cheese)
      Place du Tertre – lot of artists
      Orangerie museum, Monet’s gorgeous water lillies (Nymphas) and other paintings (I love Matisse and Modigliani and Rousseau)
      Notre Dame – climb up, it worth it.
      Go to the Le Defense quarter and take a lift up the arch
      Visit Saint Chapel: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sainte-Chapelle
      Rue Mouffetard – markets http://www.apartexchange.com/Guide_Paris5th_Mouffetard.htm
      Jardin de Louxembourg – walking, sitting, enjoying
      Jardin des Plantes – walking, sitting, enjoying
      Arenes de Lutece – watching people playing petanque
      Mosque – must go for coffee to the cafe on the corner, but the mosque is beautiful as well
      And I think these are the most important places.
      In case of any other questions, do not hesitate to contact me :-).

    My early years, we had a screen door with scrollwork. Now I understand why my mom chose it! Both her parents were from Italy, and she was steeped in the sensibilities. Thanks for the insight and the trip down memory lane.
