    More lovely glass beads, created using a similar technique to polymer clay cane work, but in glass.

    Some more glass bead samples. I am going to use this as inspiration to create a samples board with my own polymer clay beads.

    Where all the teeny houses are painted beautiful vivid colours.

    Possibly the quaintest and most colourful place I have ever seen.

    Here's me in Burano - I look so dull against the colours of the houses!

    Burano chimney the sname colour as the sky!

    Burano was getting a little cloudy as we were leaving to catch the boat back to Venice.

    The beauty that is Venice.

    The leaning tower of Pisa isn't the only wonky tower in Italy. This one we discovered in Venice.

    This was the shot! I've never caught a moving bird quite so well before!

  2. Some photographs from our recent trip to Italy. We arrived in Rome on July 17th, where we spent four nights. From Rome we caught a high speed train to Florence, where we spent another four nights. We then hired a car and drove to Lido Di Camaiore on the West coast of Tuscany; we stayed here for 5 nights. Finally we drove back to Florence, dropped off our hire car and caught another train across Italy to Venice, for another 4 night stay. We really enjoyed every aspect of our Italian experience. Particularly the driving and scenery in Tuscany was fantastic. Here I am sharing a small collection of photographs of some of our highlights. I will upload Part 2 separately, for technical reasons. Photos are not in any particular order, but all clearly labelled.

    All photos taken on my Pentax K-30 with a range of different lenses used.
