I wanted to capture a typical Venetian entrance and this one appeared like most of them. I began to recognize several hallmarks of Venetian streets (and Italy in general). Addresses were nicely painted in the same colors and fonts above every home and business throughout the city--very helpful if you're looking for an address (which I, however, was not). The streets were also clearly marked with the nice black font on white background. The consistency of these markings were appealing as I wandered around the city taking in all of the various landmarks.
