One of the worlds best violin players once stood at a subway station in New York and played for an hour. In spite of having sold out the Carnegie hall the night before at $300 a ticket almost everyone completely ignored him and kept on walking.
This video I shot while wandering the streets of Venice at sunset. The whole thing is good, but they really start going off around 48 seconds into it. If you do not see the video in your browser please click here.
It may be a bit overdone, but I figured you have to take a Gondola photo in Venice. I loved how you can just pull your boat right up to your house or anywhere else and walk right in. If I ever move to Venice, I am defiantly going to buy myself one.
I had always wanted to see how they blow glass, it is a lot more of an art form than you might think. No machines, just a man, an oven and some hand tools. I snapped this shot of a master glass blower at his craft.
Venice. Every corner is full of texture and color. My poor wife had to deal with me trying to point a camera at every building and canal in sight. Venice originally was started as a way to hide from marauding tribes. The fact it was an island made it a much harder target. Venice has 3 main exports. Blown Glass, Masks and Lace. I was amazed at how artistic the entire city was.
