Drinking Coffee Elsewhere: Orange on Red

Red, Orange.
Orange on Red?

Hold on, the artist cried,
Hold on to the orange,
hold on to the red!

Red on Orange?
No, Orange on Red,

Mark Rothko

Leave the rest of the world orange,
but paint this town orange on red!

Images captured in Venice
on July 21, 2009.

The coffee was served at
"Il Santo Bevitore"
(The Holy Drinker)
Calle Zancani, Cannaregio 2393a

  1. just so very lovely.
    when we think red and orange together we think not...yet, they look beautiful together. at least i think.

  2. That is iced coffee in Venice?!!!! Another reason to move to Italy one of these days...

  3. Nice hot colours red and orange to spark love in us all.
