Thematic photographic - weathered and worn

 Carmi at the blog Written, Inc. posts a weekly photo challenge. This week, the theme is "Weathered and Worn."

Well, "weathered and worn" could be a description of anything in Venice, Italy.   But I like, in particular, this house with its ogee gothic windows, and its weathered, worn plaster. This house is in the sestiere Castello, near the Campo di Santa Maria Formosa.

Oh, oh, oh, I have to go to Venice someday. This makes me want a spritz right now.

It was so great to see you yesterday!

Wow! Even with half-missing plaster, it grabs the eye and doesn't let go.

I often wonder if those who built these places knew they'd still be around hundreds of years later.
