Part 2 of my Italy blog post features photographs mostly taken in Venice and the surrounding islands of Murano and Burano. All photos taken on my Pentax K-30.
Glass bead samples at the glass museum in Murano.
Beautiful glass beads in Murano.
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.
Excellent glasswork in Murano.
Contemporary art installation in the Murano glass museum.
Very interesting glass window in one of the shops in Murano.
And welcome to the colourful toytown island of Burano.
Where all the teeny houses are painted beautiful vivid colours.
Possibly the quaintest and most colourful place I have ever seen.
The contrasting colours of Burano against the sky.
Where cats lap water out of boat covers whilst barking dogs watch in amazement.
Super cute and colourful.
A truly beatiful island of colour.
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.
On the boat travelling from Burano to Venice, beautiful views of the mountains and scenery.
Sunset across the water.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
On a canal in Venice.
Monastary Island near Venice.
View from the tallest point in 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!
Beautiful Venice (shame about the rubbish bags!)
Tuscan hilltop settlement.
Beautiful degraded house in Venice.
Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed!
