Night Lights over Samuel Beckett Bridge

After a long winter hibernation it’s time to get the gear out and start photographing (and sharing) again! The goal is to do as much spot hunting as possible, take some good pictures, and share the best hints and suggestions about photographic opportunities across Ireland. Be it street life, landscape or seascape photography, the “EmeraldContinue reading “Night Lights over Samuel Beckett Bridge”

Grand Canal Dock – Dublin

Time to continue our photographic tour of Irish beauty in black and white. I was saying how modernity and ancient inheritance coexist around Ireland’s capital, Dublin, and if you fancy some architecture photography, or even some abstract photography, you are not going to be disappointed if you take a tour through Dublin’s most modern neighbourhood.Continue reading “Grand Canal Dock – Dublin”

Samuel Beckett Bridge – Dublin

Let’s start a new short series of black and white pictures of the capital of Ireland. Founded as a Viking settlement, Dublin (that in Old Irish means dark pool) has grown to the rank of one of the top thirty global cities in the world, due to its importance as a centre for education, theContinue reading “Samuel Beckett Bridge – Dublin”

WhatContinue reading “Manhattan Skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge”

Calatrava’s Bridge – Ponte della Costituzione

Picture of a different Venice: Calatrava’s Bridge. Many controversies has accompanied The “Ponte della Costituzione” (Calatrava’s Bridge) since its planning: the final realization costs have doubled the initial budget of the project, its relatively steep pavement and small steps have caused many falls, and even its usefulness has been argued. Still, this fourth bridge crossingContinue reading “Calatrava’s Bridge – Ponte della Costituzione”

Saint Mark’s Skyline – Venice

Yesterday I was at San Giorgio Maggiore’s island to take some last photos of the exhibition “The Sky Over Nine Columns” by Heinz Mack, before the structure will leave Venice, that should happen in a couple of days. The sun set down, leaving the sky half bright, half dark, as the first lights of theContinue reading “Saint Mark’s Skyline – Venice”

Saint Mark’s Square Through The Sky Over Nine Columns

Playing again with the installation by Heinz Mack, “The Sky Over Nine Columns”, that amazingly enriches the skyline of Venice and interacts with the city in a lot of different ways. This summer I have been trying to take advantage of this piece of art to photograph some of the most iconic building of Venice (St. Mark’s Bell Tower and Doge’sContinue reading “Saint Mark’s Square Through The Sky Over Nine Columns”

The Sky Over Nine Columns

Hosting the 14th International Architecture Biennale, titled Fundamentals, Venice now offers even more photographic occasions. Beyond the exposition itself, various installations are placed around the city, producing both a dialogue and a contrast between the art works and the surrounding environment. As did “Boy with Frog” by Charles Ray until 2013, now it is “The Sky OverContinue reading “The Sky Over Nine Columns”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

There is something about strolling around Venice with the challenge to take some pictures that represent the beauty that you see. But it is even more important not to forget to change your point of view sometime. This week’s photo challenge is just perfect to train and look at things with a different perspective. SoContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Up”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

The Bridge of Sighs, in Venice, connects the Doge’s Palace to the old Prisons. The bridge owes its name to Lord Byron, and it comes from the suggestion that prisoners would sigh crossing the bridge toward their dungeon. It represents of course a big change in one man’s condition, going from freedom to confinement. TodayContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Change”
