Venice – Stuck in Customs

Walking Home Again

Daily Photo – Walking Home Again

I probably stayed at least four weeks at the amazing Hotel O’lorogio in Venice. It’s a great place and the team there is amazing. Wow, what a fun time! Anyway, there was basically only one way back to the hotel, and it was over a small bridge that gave this view. One evening, I stopped to take my time and capture this scene.

The Keys That Bind Us All

Daily Photo – The Keys That Bind Us All

Every two years there is the Venice Biennale for arts. If you haven’t heard of it, I’ll attempt to explain it here.

It’s sort of like the Olympics for art. Each country sends one artist to decorate a room or home or villa or warehouse however they wish. Some countries do just paintings. others sculptures, others video with music, it’s just all over the place. And you sort of walk from one venue to the next to see what each country has offered into the mix.

This is Japan. They had this lovely room with old ships connected by one super-long red piece of yarn that interconnected throughout the space and were strung through 1,000 keys. The idea was that the sea and boats interconnect the world and hold the keys to connection.

New Toy

Daily Photo – New Toy

I’ve just bought myself a new drone, the Mavic Mini 3 Pro… in some ways it’s not as good as my existing drone however through an absolutely mad bit of engineering DJI have managed to keep the weight down to 249grams and its tiny size wise too. Still got 4k video, still got decent stills resolution and good range. So a really nice balance and something I can travel with far more easily! Looking forward to sharing content created with it. For now here’s a shot from the good old Phantom 3 Pro when I was in Venice.

The Many Roofs of Venice

Daily Photo – The Many Roofs of Venice

Here’s a view of Venice that you probably haven’t seen before. I grabbed this a number of years ago, back when the life of a quadcopter pilot was far simpler as far as rules and regulations go. Now, even though this was a reasonably straightforward flight with permission, it would probably not be approved. I heard it’s really tough to get any sort of flight approval ther enow. So, it was fortunate that I could get it done and that the universe threw in a nice sky as a bonus.

Carnivale is Back

I saw on the news that Carnivale is back in Venice following a couple of years gap due to Covid. I loved my time there in 2016, so many amazing costumes and events. Hopefully everyone stays safe and has fun. 🙂

Venice at Night

Here’s an image I grabbed while out playing with the Hasselblad H5D. I was curious about what that big sensor would do with some low light shots and HDR… turned out well. 🙂

Venice Carnivale in front of the Vaporettos

Daily Photo – Venice Carnivale in front of the Vaporettos

People wearing all their Carnivale garb look especially storybook in the night. Before I went to this huge event, I thought that people may not enjoy having their photo taken. Boy, what I wrong. They just stand around posing all day long for the joy of it. I was often wondering if they wanted money, but there seemed to be a fun narcissistic anomaly where all of these people just loved being the center of attention. And that worked great for me.

A Painting of Venice

Daily Photo – A Painting of Venice

I don’t do a lot of painting, but maybe I should! I quite enjoy it. I think I just don’t really feel like an expert yet or anything… but that’s never stopped me before so why should it now? This is a digital painting btw… I’ve never tried actual painting unless you count fingerpainting in kindergarten.

I was shooting this really cool palace in Venice when, out of the blue, this gal came crawling up the stairs to give me some tickets for a show later that night. This is just the sort of thing that happens in Venice.
