PHOTOS FROM VENICE - sun-kissed ferro

This was taken a couple of years ago on the Giudecca. I was in the vicinity of Squero dei Rossi. there were a few gondolas stored on shore with their prows in the air, and I caught the sun's glint off the ferro of one. No photoshop here.

Some gondola ferros with three little "key-like" ornaments inserted between the six foward-pointing metal fingers. Sorrowfully, I haven't been able to find out about their purpose or meaning.

Thanks in advance, Faithfully: Tamas Feher from Hungary.
