Those who have read some of my comments will know that I have a great love of the ordinary, the mundane, the unromantic, things that show real life, not the romanticised stuff. So here we have just a small selection of shots showing the ordinary, workaday side of Venice. Beware - there are many more to come.

V1 is a handle on a shutter which with its shadow creates a heart shape that symbolises my love of Venice, so I thought it was a suitable image to start with. The rest speak for themselves and include my particular passion, the Venetian version of the garbage wagon!

Anyway, thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy some of them.

Yes Lynne,as much as I like all these pretty Venetian masks and that Doggy Palace,and that Sighing Bridge,and these pointy boaty things on the canals,I do prefer to see a bit of grot and rust no matter where about in the world it is. I share your love of cranes too but a waste of time going all the way to Venice to see them as they have one exactly the same as your one down at Leith docks. I can also see your strange construction on the roofs done at Leith that you have in V12.They are machine gun posts to protect the satellite dishes being stolen since Sky put their prices up by 35 %.What a splendid idea that garbage wagon is too.It would be an ideal place to put these young neds in it that are stealing the satellite dishes.Now I must dash as that is the footie highlights started on the telly.But I may be back if someone has stolen my satellite dish !!

V 1 with the heart shaped pattern is quite excellent.
