People in Florence

Now that the sun has come out in Scotland, it feels like the right time to look back at our trip to Italy last year and do some more blog posts.  We spent a few days in that beautiful city Florence and a post on the art and architecture will follow.  But I thought I’d start with the people – we like street photography and Florence is full of people – you can’t move without tripping over tourists doing selfies or snapping each other with tablets.  However, we tried to focus on the people who live and work in Florence. for instance, this doorman outside a posh hotel.

Or stopping to answer that vital text.

Or pedestrians taking that important call.

People live their lives despite the bustle of the visitors all around them.

And even manage to find quiet routes away from the hurly burly.

Having said all that, a post on people in Florence can’t ignore the tourists – and it’s hard to photography some of the main sights without tourists in shot.  The replica of Michelangelo’s David outside the  Palazzo Vecchio is impossible to photograph without visitors passing by so I embraced them as part of the shot.

And you cannot avoid the crowds outside the Uffiizi if you want to visit its treasures.

We loved the Loggia dei Lanzi with its outdoor gallery of statues  as did this couple.

Florence is a beautiful city and we were so fortunate to have the chance to visit – and we look forward to sharing more photos in future posts.

Venice People – locals and visitors

I’m sure there is a time when Venice is quiet but we have yet to discover it.  So we embraced the people – visitors and locals alike; after all, it’s hard to complain about tourists when you are one yourself although I can understand the local No Grandi Navi campaign to reduce the enormous cruise ships which cause damage with their wake and whose clients spend little time and money in Venice but because they travel in large groups make certain areas very congested.

Locals can be spotted – usually ducking down the quiet side routes.

Or having a quick fag before service starts.

I like the symmetry of Paul’s shot with the tiny figure just slightly out of line with the centre.

This shot of Paul’s has caught the light showing the texture of the worn tiles.

Piazza San Marco with the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Bell Tower is a massive draw for tourists and you can spend hours people watching there – with your camera to hand, obviously.

This guy was snapping away turning round in a full circle.

The Piazza is a great (if expensive) place to stop for a drink – we couldn’t bring ourselves to spend that amount of money on a coffee but were glad others did.

Smoking, Venice. Photo by and copyright of Lynn Henni.

Thankfully, you don’t need to use the cafes to have a seat with a view on Piazza San Marco.

I love reflection shots although I generally try to avoid being part of the picture but failed here.  The shot also has Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute and a local fisherman.

Still, I prefer to snap Paul!

We were supposed to be looking at art here but I loved the light coming in through the windows of the Ca’ d’Oro Museum as Paul appeared at the top of the stairs.

Again I like the light on this one as these Italian ladies were sharing a photo on a mobile phone in the sun.

Venice is a wonderful city and if you can pick a quiet time, so much the better.  Otherwise, our advice is skirt around the centre especially 11-3.30 when the cruisers are ashore.  We’ll be back!

Venice Canal-life

We can’t really do a series of blog posts on Venice without doing one focused on canals, gondole and gondoliers. Not that all those navigating upright are gondoliers.  This elderly gent was a cool guy with one hand on the oar while holding his pose.

We resisted the lure of the gondola trip but everywhere we looked, there were gondole full of tourists.

It could get a tad congested at junctions.

I’m not sure I’d want to be steered around by someone born to fight but possible useful at those busy junctions.

Of course, boats are not just for tourists – all goods brought into Venice have to come by boat.

And locals (and a few canny tourists) use the traghetto which are plain gondole used to ferry folk across the Grand Canal which costs €2 for visitors and can save a lot of walking.

The quieter side of Venice, Cannaregio, feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the San Marco or San Polo – it’s well worth a wander and there’s a great restaurant with live music over there, Il Paradiso Perduto, and a lovely little wine bar Vino Vera we can strongly recomment.

Venice by Night

Our Italian trip started with a few nights in Venice.  We had spent a week here 4 years previously but that was BP – Before Photography (or at least what photography has become for us – shooting in raw, looking beyond the obvious, envisaging the world in black and white).  So, unsurprisingly, we took a lot of photos.  This blog post focuses on Venice by night.

We have to start with a fairly classic view.  We stayed in a pensione opposite the Santo Stefano church, a short walk from this bridge which attracts many tourists snapping away whether with mobile phones on selfie sticks or full frame cameras; it is a beautiful spot with domes of the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute in the distance.

The bridge is itself lit with these rather rickety-looking lights which had a slightly sinister tinge when you are passing over the deserted bridge late at night.

Once back over the bridge, the Campo Santo Stefano is a popular hangout with restaurants and the best Gelateria we found in Venice, the Paolin.  Perhaps that’s why so many families lingered in the square – this one playing with toy lights.

This stall outside our pensione sold such toys along with all sorts of other vital supplies – even at night, Italians might need to buy some sun glasses.

Despite being main thoroughfares, canals are generally unlit beyond the light which reflects from the buildings and narrow lanes between the buildings.  This makes for interesting reflections.

Or darkness which sets the architecture off beautifully.

As everywhere, smokers can be found lurking in dark corners.

There was an event at the local theatre which looked like a graduation party with everyone done up to the nines – this group were being waved off by their parents at the start of their evening.

A selection of images from our trip to Madrid earlier this year.  The sun largely shone, creating shadows which gave the Cervantes Monument a wonderful depth.

Mercado San Antón is a fabulous place for lunch – you buy your food and drinks from a range of stalls representing different types of Spanish cuisine.  At weekends, it is packed with Madrileños and you’re lucky to find a perch but midweek, it is much quieter.

We had plenty of time to spare at Atocha train station before heading to Barcelona – it’s a great place to hang around.  It has a wonderful, lush bit of greenery with a pool and many terrapins and turtles – unfortunately, this was under wraps for cleaning so we had to make do photographing people.

In stark contrast to the surrounding gothic and modernist architecture, El Corte Ingles is a brutal, domineering building built in 1962 towards the end of Franco’s rule.

The stunning Mies Van Der Rohe Pavilion was designed as the German national pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition.  The glass, steel and marble construction is  a fabulous example of the Modern Movement.

The pavilion contains Georg Kolbe’s striking bronze sculpture, Dawn.  It is perfectly placed to reflect in water, glass and marble.

The old Mercat del Born is the largest covered square in Europe according to Wikipedia and marks the start of the Catalan modernism architecture.   Its beautiful, tranquil and cool interior makes a relaxing refuge from the heat of Barcelona’s streets (and it has a cafe and a loo!).  More importantly, after years of neglect, the building has gone through prolonged renovation, in the course of which, the ruins of medieval streets, houses, bars and shops from the defeat of Catalunya during the War of Spanish Succession were uncovered.

After a few days trekking round Barcelona, it is good to get out of the town on Las Golondrinas.  After a trip out the harbour and along  the Barceloneta front, the boats take you round the industrial bit of of the docks.

Finally, a colourful parillada – grilled lobster, cuttlefish, langostinos, gambas and mussels.  El Rey de Gamba is an institution – it’s busy, bold and brash but the seafood is excellent and pretty good value given the location near the harbour.
