A Venice Road (?) Sign

Signs is the topic of Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge today – traffic, directional signs along the roads or on buildings being the brief. Hope this sign on a post at the entry to the Rio de San Cassan (a small canal) in Venice counts!

Black and White – Miksang Monochrome

Miksang is a Tibetan word meaning “good eye.” It represents a form of contemplative photography based on the Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa, in which the eye is in synchronisation with the contemplative mind.

This is a view of the west wing of Ascott House. A former Jacobean hunting box, it dates back to the 16th Century and was donated to the National Trust by Anthony de Rothschild in 1949. The house remains the countryside residence of the Rothschild family today.

House and gardens are open to the public between March and September each year.
