Paul was delighted and flattered to be among  the winning entries – listed below showing the category, the title and the photographer.

‘After Dark’ – ‘View Down Princes Street at Night’ – David Tomlins
‘Changing City’- ‘Canal Dreams’ – Sue Williamson
‘On the Inside’ – ‘Vaseline Hair Tonic’ – Paul Henni
‘Festivals and Event City’ – ‘Hogmanay’ – Mengqi Du
‘In all Weathers’ – ‘Snow on the Way’- Fiona Johnson

Due to the response to the call for entries, there is also an additional mini-exhibition of the six winning entries and a further twelve runners-up as a set of eighteen canvas prints.

We went along for the opening event and were amazed at the size of Paul’s image under ‘S for Shopping’ within the exhibition.  Lynn had to snap the proud photographer next to it.

It’s probably time for a wee round up, as we’ve had a busy 2016 that continues into 2017.

Retina Scottish International Photography Festival June – July 2017

Having been part of the Retina Scottish International Festival 2016, it is good to see the plans for this year’s Festival, which will run from the 17h of June to the 30th July. Lynn has recently joined the Retina Team as a board member and Paul is working as one of the volunteers.

The Festival 2017 line-up is now out, including details of the Photomarathon and Portfolio Reviews. All funds raised contribute to keeping the Festival running and making sure that access to the exhibitions remains free. You can also donate online or at each of the exhibitions.

Art Collective launch night

There’ll be a launch night on Thursday the 15th June from 18:00 until 21:00, so a chance to come along, see what it is all about about and meet the artists.

Here is a small selection of what we have currently on show in The Art Collective and The Dark Room.

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.

The priest with his traditional robes somewhat at odds with the modern technology in his hands.

Or stopping to answer that vital text.

Or pedestrians taking that important call.

Or just sitting reading a book.

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.

Pylones 2, Venice. Photo by and copyright of Paul Henni.

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.

Worn Surfaces, Venice. Photo by and copyright of Paul Henni.

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.

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.
