In Italy it is common to find little shrines here and there along the way.
This shrine of the Madonna and Child Jesus was taken in Florence. I simply love the way it's positioned above the street with a staircase leading up to a nearby door.
The balcony above is also of interest.

This little shrine was found along one of the winding roads in Brusson, a little town (famous for its ski resorts) located about 1,388 meters above sea level. Its size is about 12 x 8 inches.
It was so small I almost missed it.
The photograph below gives a better idea of its size.
Have a Happy and Blessed October :)
