abc wednesday —L is for "lace"

I was fascinated by this piece
of lace that was started long ago but
never finished.  I snuck this shot in
the Correr Museum, which is dedicated
to the life and culture of Venice.

  1. I'm wondering who started that lacework and why they stopped. I tend to think procrastination is a modern trait but perhaps it was alive and well long, long ago.

  2. I love laces. And lace dress and tops are back. Awesome photos you have here do you make it?ABC Wed

  5. Lovely Lace!!! Fascinating...imagining all the reasons the person had to stop working on this...

  6. Lace-making is a dying art - this picture is just beautiful. Excellent composition.
