VENICE 2017: The Chimneys


How about something none of us expected!  I guess when you're always looking up for weathervanes...but don't find them...you're happy to notice what IS there.

So I collected them!

How can you not be mesmerized!

Almost as elegant as any ornamental tower.





Don't you love the tiny roofs?











These were at the end of our wee canal near our B&B.
They remind me of trumpets tooting their horns.

I know.  Silly me.  But I had to collect something!

    1. I would agree, Elaine, that they're proud of their chimneys. HA! Santa Clause? Who cares. There's more than one way to skin the cat!

  3. Hi Ginnie. It is really an original and excellent idea to have photographed the chimneys of Venice. I would not have thought of it. It is interesting and sometimes some are funny

  5. This is a fun post. Who would think of of the different chimneys. It was fun to look for them and there are many different ones. I love the small terracotta one, it looks like a big whistle.... IHVJ
