Out of the Jurisdiction: Venice IV



Finding interesting reflections in Venice is like taking candy from a baby.  Here is a photo taken in the window of one of those ubiquitous shops selling masks for Carnevale.

Thanks for your comments yesterday.  Many viewers encouraged more photos from my recent trip.  I will have some Hartford photos tomorrow, but I will intersperse travel photos -- including more Venetian reflection photos -- with local photos for a while.

You can see other photographs with reflections on Weekend Reflections.

The Wall Street Journal had an article about a week ago about the consideration being given in Venice to redirecting the cruise ship traffic so that they no longer sail past Piazza San Marco.

On the one hand, they want to preserve the historic structures and avoid damage from vibrations, waves and pollution. ON the other hand, they want the business that the cruise ships bring.

I have several of these window shots that I took when I was there. I saw some interesting things in those windows. I remember a set of tiny little figures making up a whole orchestra.

That is a perfect reflection in that fascination window. Did you buy yourself a mask? They look great.

Venice is such an amazing place. I love the mix of eye candy inside and outside of the shop window. Great shot! I also enjoyed seeing your other Venice shots.

Wow, those venitian masks look really pretty, and the reflection gives quite a mystery atmosphere to the whole picture... Nice !

I invite you to check my participation on the reflexion contest, but also to come see my Skywatch participation :

Jack said...

You do, Grace, but it is not me. I moved to the right so I would not be in the picture.

I am not a great fan of 'busy' reflections, but you really got a very good one here!

Amazing reflections, I love seeing everything going on. I enjoy seeing travel photos very much - I get to armchair travel! (Thanks also for your work-photo comment, I also struggle with local vs. further-afield posts when I've been away a lot.)

This has certainly got the 'wow' factor. Colors, reflections, action - all equal a great shot. Love it.

Great job! Painterly results, interesting to see.

Kay said...

Wow! This is a great shot. Everything about it is interesting - it has such a rich sense of place. But I was sorry you didn't include your own reflection in the composition. . .
