Venice Snapshots


Bear with me – we will publish more from our Venice Biennale trip, but currently time is a premium so I will start with some general impressions from the first day.

As you can see it was rather grey and cloudy this time in November and Aqua Alta (high water) was emminent…

Despite this life goes on, people need food and all supplies are provided by boats as there are no cars in the city

CF000904

Even the packaging material for the famous Murano glass factories (we are staying on Murano usually as it is far nicer and much more peaceful than main Venice)

CF000913

Cafes are locked up and waiting for the next season (or a spell of sunny days)

CF000917

Rubbish is collected and then brought to central places where barges load the container contents in their belly to be disposed at the mainland

CF000915

A view over a side artery of Murano in the morning – 30 min later it is quite a different story as people are getting around, etc.

CF000922

It was abviously wet and umbrellas don’t always work the way they should…

CF000907

The local patron of the bar was investigating passers-by

CF000924

An entrance to one of the view remaining factories

CF000926

I loved the way you can see through the glass into the restaurant and then have the glass again

CF000930

Small side streets with light starting to flood in

CF000939

A seagull tries to get her share of the french fries and other left overs as well

CF000941

In general the impression is – pretty much locked up for winter…
