The Texture of Venice, Part 8

October 20, 2011

Near the end of the workshop, we visited the island of Murano, which is home to a centuries-old art glass industry. Photographs © George A. Jardine GPS: +45° 27′ 13.72″, +12° 21′ 7.38″ Sort of predictably, in several hours of wandering around the island, no very good photographs of the glassworks seemed to reveal themselves. […]

The Texture of Venice, Part 7

October 19, 2011

I photographed sunrise almost every morning from the Accademia Bridge. And even when the weather seemed virtually the same day after day (clear, hot, and humid…), the sunrise would still be dramatically different each morning. And so even if you felt you had captured a great sunrise shot once or twice, it always paid to […]

The Texture (and Color…) of Venice, Part 6

October 18, 2011

Fairly deep into the workshop by now, as we set out on the morning of the 22nd. And like clockwork, the predicted mid-workshop panic is starting to set in with some of the students. But I’m concentrating firmly on the foods of Venice. :-) Fresh foods are everywhere. In fact, so far, I’ve only spotted […]

The Texture of Venice, Part 5

October 17, 2011

Danger of Death. A sign on a wall surrounding a power station on Giudecca. Funny… as we were passing by this wall, we thought it was a cemetary on the other side. I only realized it was a power station once I looked at the satellite photos. Photographs © George A. Jardine GPS: +45° 25′ […]

The Texture of Venice, Part 4

October 17, 2011

Day 4. One does go to Venice with the expectation of somehow obtaining certain photographs. Something that you’ve already got in your head. One of those great reflections shots… or a shot of the iconic boats bobbing up and down in the water. Photographs © George A. Jardine GPS: +45° 26′ 12.21″, +12° 20′ 0.42″ […]

The Texture of Venice, Part 3

October 16, 2011

Day 3. Starting to get used to that feeling of being over-saturated with texture. The stairway again, only from the top this time. Hotel Pausania. A really great hotel, btw. Photographs © George A. Jardine GPS: +45° 25′ 58.70″, +12° 19′ 24.00″ We just caught the tail end of the Biennale di Venezia, a giant […]

The Texture of Venice, Part 2

October 16, 2011

Woke up on the morning of day 2, and there it was staring me in the face again. That texture. Again, shot right from the second floor balcony of my hotel. Photographs © George A. Jardine GPS: +45° 25′ 58.71″, +12° 19′ 23.63″ Tramezzini. All incredible. I could eat a dozen of these every day. […]

The Texture of Venice…

October 15, 2011

Photographs © George A. Jardine GPS: +45° 26′ 38.27″, +12° 19′ 30.01″ I’ve been back home for almost three weeks now, and I still just can’t get Venice out of my head. My first impression was deeply imprinted by the idea, of texture… from the very first moment I set eyes on it. And now […]
