A Front Porch for Mike...

A Porch in Venice...
July 2007

My iTunes: Unforgetful You by Jars of Clay

This shot is for Mike. He has to forgive me for not posting it earlier. I was in Venice a couple of months ago. It was a wonderful trip. Even though I was far away and "powered down", my blogging friends weren't far from my mind. As my husband and I were going through a canal on a gondola, I saw this plastic chair next to the canal. My first thought was of Mike. He is a fellow photographer and blogger. He takes all sorts of stunning images. Some of my favorites have been of front porches that he comes across. So this one is for him. He is taking a break from his blog for awhile so I wanted to make sure to post this....

A front porch...Venetian style!

Take care Mike and come visit soon often!

Gorgeous scene.

I know Mike digs porches, but why'd you hold this one back? One of my favorites from your Venice trip.

Those white plastic chairs end up everywhere!

CG said...

Always good to see more Venice shots and this is really something. Have a great holiday weekend!

Mike said...

This is the best "front porch" yet. Can you imagine an old Veneitian couple sitting out there talking to the gons as they go by. This is a wonderful picture Anna and it makes me miss my blog.

I went to the first football game of the year last night and took some pictures. Youngest daughter is in the band. I am probably going to put up a picture on the blog today that I liked.

Thanks so much for the picture and the kind words. I am enjoying my break but already itch to post again.

Mike said...

PS..Have you noticed how those white chairs have taken over the world? I saw a photo story in one of the British Magazines (Black and White I believe) and the guy took pictures of these white chairs and all the strange places he found them. It was great!

What a place that must be.

Unmistakably Venice! Nice photo!

Love this picture and all the textures and colors and especially the plastic chairs.
The homes we stayed at in Nicaragua and Haiti had them also. In fact that was the majority of the furniture we sat on.

Ash said...

Beautiful!

kenju said...

I love that photo, Anna. It is jarring, however, to see such an ugly, ubiquitous plastic chair in such a beautiful antiquated setting!

beautiful shot as always.....

i wonder if they ever had a little to much and forgot what was out their front door? Hmmm, comedy moment me thinks

KMF said...

bluemountainmama said...

lovely....but the mom in me thinks how that would be a horrible front porch with young kids! :)

i hope to make it to italy one day.... after seeing all your venice shots, especially!

Beautiful pics! I am so inspired to learn photography! I really don't know how to play with my camera!

Moi said...

the white chair looks almost anachronistic in those settings......great shot, Anna....:)

Elaine said...

Mike does love porch shots! One of my favotite things about looking at blogs is getting to see different parts of the world.

Ms. Math said...

I love all the little details in this photo - the exposed brick, the ornate lamp. Beautiful photo.

Mike said...

Ok, now I have posted one just for you! I hope you enjoy it.

Faye Pekas said...

Ohh what a wonderful porch. Now that would be the place to have morning coffee.

oldmanlincoln said...

Very nice photography and the writing is good too.

Chad Oneil said...

Time for a new one, Anna ;)

Anna said...

That's really cool! I think front porches are an important part of the house they're great for well...sitting! We don't have one though.

Sarch said...

I'd love to know the story behind that chair and "porch". Who sits there? How did they end up there? So many of your pics make me think and wonder.

Anna let me take a page out of one of Carmis' previous comments and apologize for being such a poor blog friend. I know I'm "in and out" but rest assured I regularly check out my favorite blog friends (of which you are one for sure) on a consistent basis.

How neat that you're back in the states!

bluemountainmama said...

just stopping by to say 'hola'! and have a great weekend with your family!!

JAM said...

Wow, what a cool shot. I've always wanted to ride in one of them thangs.
