In the city of Venice, where so much is hidden behind doors and glimpses at life inside a window seem a stolen pleasure, I caught this woman enjoying her view of the neighborhood Piazza.
Other photos simply capture the peeling plaster, streaked paint and rusting metal caused by centuries of rising and falling water. Doorways in Venice can be Moorish, modern, Baroque, Renaissance, Victorian or any style man has dreamed up–but somehow they form a coherent whole that is unmistakably Venice. I end with perhaps the most famous doorway in Venice.

For Christmas, I received a digital slide converter, which means that I have access to many of my photos that previously were hidden in boxes. Are you tired of windows? Want a change of subject? or do you want some more doors and windows?
