Venezia -Rio del Ghetto( Double Vision) - 2009
Made by Angelo Aldo Filippin
Negli anni ’80, quasi 30 anni fa iniziai una serie di immagini composta da due fotogrammi. La chiamai allora “Doppio Click” in quanto era proprio formata da 2 scatti diversi. Gli scatti dovevano essere complementari, cioe integrativi uno dell’altro. Dovevano suggerire un contenuto estetico o sociale e a tale funzione dovevano concorrere entrambi. Molti, non tutti, di questi Doppi Scatti si possono osservare nel mio sito Flickr nel set che ha lo stesso nome. Era un modo per evadere dalla solita visione singola senza dover presentare una serie o un portfolio dedicato ad un luogo, persona o avvenimento. Allora quando presentai questi lavori, nei Circoli, nelle Mostre e fra i Fotografi, si creò subito una divisione netta fra i Favorevoli e i Contrari. Fra quelli che erano assolutamente entusiasti e chi affermava che era una “boiata pazzesca”. Non si discuteva sul contenuto, sulla composizione o sul messaggio della Doppia Immagine ma solo sulla presentazione. Poi nel tempo questi lavori furono chiamati con molti nomi: Dittici, Diptici, Double Vision ecc ecc. e altri si cimentarono nell’esperienza. Fin dal mio ingresso di un anno fà, proprio Flickr inconsciamente mi suggerì l’idea di riprendere questo lavoro: cioè la funzione di inserire una nota all’interno di una fotografia. Quanti particolari degni di un’altra immagine ci sfuggono quando scattiamo una fotografia? Quante altre potenziali immagini di pregio possono esserci e coesistere all’interno di un altro click? Queste mie nuove doppie immagini saranno formate dallo scatto originale e da un suo particolare, ai quali sarà data la stessa rilevanza. Favorevoli o Contrari ?? In the 80s, almost 30 years ago began a series of images consisting of two frames. I called then Double Click because it was just made up of 2 different shots. The shots were to be complementary, integrative each other. They were to suggest an aesthetic or social content, and this function should contribute both. Many, not all, of these double click you can see in my Flickr site in the set that has the same name. It was a way to escape from the usual single view without having to make a series or a portfolio dedicated to a place, person or event. Then when I presented this work, clubs, exhibitions and one of the photographers, he immediately created a sharp division between those for and against. Among those who were absolutely thrilled and are saying that it was a horrible thing. Did not discuss the content, composition or the message of the double images but only on presentation. Over time these works were called by many names: Diptychs, Díptico, Double Vision, etc. etc.. and others will be challenged in the experience. Since my entry a year ago, just Flickr unconsciously he suggested the idea of reviving this work: ie the function to insert a note inside a photograph. How many details worthy of another image elude us when you shoot a photo? How many more pictures of potential value may exist and coexist within another click? These will be my new double images formed from the original shot and a detail, which will be given the same relevance. Favorable or against? View large

Venice, Italy Ca' d'Oro (correctly Palazzo Santa Sofia) is regarded as one of the most beautiful palazzi on the Grand Canal in Venice. One of the older palazzi, it has always been known as Ca' d'Oro (golden house) due to the gilt and polychrome external decorations which once adorned its walls. The Palazzo was built between 1428 and 1430 for the Contarini family, who provided Venice with eight Doges between 1043 and 1676. Upon election, each new Doge would leave his own palazzo and take residence in the Doge's Palace. The architects of the Ca d'Oro were Giovanni Bon and his son Bartolomeo Bon. The work of these two sculptors and architects epitomises the Gothic style in Venice: they are best known for their work on the Doge's Palace and in particular the Porta della Carta with its monumental sculpture of the judgement of Solomon. The principal façade of Ca' d'Oro facing onto the Grand Canal is built in the Bon's Venetian floral gothic style. Other nearby buildings in this style are Palazzo Barbaro and the Palazzo Giustinian. This elegant linear style favoured by the Venetian architects was not totally superseded by the flourishes of baroque until the end of the 16th century. The Venetian Gothic style is Byzantine in appearance. On the Ca' d'Oro's ground floor a recessed colonnaded loggia gives access to the entrance hall (portego de mezo) directly from the canal. Above this colonnade is the enclosed balcony of the principal salon on the piano nobile. The columns and arches of this balcony have capitals which in turn support a row of quatrefoil windows of great delicacy; above this balcony is another enclosed balcony or loggia of a similar yet even lighter design. To describe the style of the palazzo simply:- it is a cross between a medieval church and a mosque. This wedding cake exterior gives no hint that the palazzo is in fact built (like most other Palazzi) around a small inner courtyard. Following the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797 the palazzo changed ownership several times. One 19th century owner, the ballet dancer Marie Taglioni, removed (in what today can be considered an act of vandalism) the Gothic stairway from the inner courtyard and also destroyed the ornate balconies overlooking the court. In 1922 the palazzo was bequeathed to the State by its last owner and saviour Baron Giorgio Franchetti who had acquired it in 1894. Following extensive restoration, including the reconstruction of the stairway, it is now open to the public as a gallery. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ca'_d'Oro 20090307_40D_IMG_4348_Veneza

il ponte di vetro di calatrava... diverse prospettive romantiche a venezia! “L’arco d’amore” ho detto io “ Il fatto che ogni storia ha una linea curva che sale e poi scende ed è finita, la puoi vedere da lontano come un tubo al neon colorato. A che punto siamo del nostro arco secondo te?” Lei ci ha pensato, lo spazio intorno era vuoto, senza misura. Ha detto “Molto in alto credo”. “Però non pensi che ci sia un punto ancora più in alto?” le ho chiesto “che possiamo andare oltre?”. “Non lo so, forse” ha detto lei “Ma dove vorresti arrivare? Non ti basta così?” “Sì che mi basta” ho detto io “Però se siamo al punto più alto vuol dire che da qui possiamo solo scendere. E non ne ho voglia. Non ho voglia di nessun arco del cavolo. Voglio una linea diagonale che sale soltanto, o almeno una linea che continua dritta all’infinito”. Lei ha riso, ma era un riso soffiato come un respiro, ha detto “Anch’io”. “E secondo te quanto dura un arco d’amore?” le ho chiesto “la parte vera non quella che poi magari continua sotto terra come uno scavo di talpa”. “Dipende” ha detto lei. “Ma in media?” le ho detto “Qual è la tua media? Qual è il tuo massimo? Per quanto sei riuscita ad essere davvero innamorata e presa e piena di passione? Due anni forse? O forse uno e mezzo? O anche solo sei mesi? Quanto dura la passione pura, la smania di vedere qualcuno che ti consuma qualunque gesto e dà un altro senso a qualunque cosa fai? Prima che tutto cominci a diventare tutto più realistico e si sedimenti e si fissi? Prima di cominciare a guardare fotografie invece di guardare un’immagine in movimento continuo?” Lei si è appoggiata più indietro alla parete, in una zona di aria più densa e scura. Ha detto “Io ho sempre sperato che invece una volta sia diverso e duri per sempre” da arcodamore di Andrea De Carlo
La Chiesa dei Santi Geremia e Lucia a Venezia - The Church of Saints Geremia and Lucy in Venice.
Made by ricsen
La chiesa dei Santi Geremia e Lucia si trova nel sestiere di Cannaregio nell'omonima piazza Campo San Geremia poco lontana la Chiesa degli Scalzi e contiene l'urna con le Reliquie di Santa Lucia da Siracusa Vergine e Martire. Edificata nel XI secolo, il Tempio venne più volte ricostruito; nel 1206 già custodiva il corpo di San Magno Vescovo di Oderzo ed Eraclea morto nel 670. L'edificio venne ricostruito dal Doge Sebastiano Ziani nel 1292 anno in cui avvenne la sua consacrazione. L'attuale Tempio è stato progettato da Carlo Corbellini nel 1753 mentre le facciate sul campo e sul canale di Cannaregio sono del 1861. Il luogo viene visitato da pellegrini di ogni parte del mondo che vengono a venerare il corpo di Santa Lucia da Siracusa, il cui volto è coperto da una maschera d'argento voluta dal Patriarca di Venezia Angelo Roncalli, che divenne poi Papa Giovanni XXIII. The church of Saints Geremia e Lucy is located in the Sestiere (neighborhood) of Cannaregio in the homonym square Campo San Geremia not far from the Church of the Scalzi and the urn with the relics of Saint Lucy from Syracuse Virgin and Martyr are housed inside the Temple. Built in the eleventh century, the Temple was rebuilt several times, in 1206 already guarded the body of St. Magnus, Bishop of Oderzo and Eraclea died in 670 b.C. The building was rebuilt by Doge Sebastiano Ziani; in 1292 was consecrated. The present temple was designed by Carlo Corbellini in 1753 while the facades on the ground and the canal of Cannaregio were built in 1861. The site is visited by pilgrims from all over the world who come to venerate the body of Saint Lucia from Syracuse, whose face is covered with a silver mask required by the Patriarch of Venice Angelo Roncalli, who later became Pope John XXIII.

Statue - Venezia, Italia I’m doing some revisiting on some old travel photos. These photos have been in my Flickr for about a year now, and I decided to give them a second chance. I can explain that. Recently I’ve read on a photographer’s website that people should publish (post/upload) their best works only. The hint to achieve that was to first pick the Top 50 among them. Once this is done, then the pick the Top 40 and keep on like this until finally reaching Top 10. Then you are good to upload them. Analyzing my photos from last year visit to Italy, I realized I had too many photos there (192 photos). So, why not choose my Top 10? Besides that, after 1 year, I’ve learned something about Lightroom, so, why not re-do some post-processing also? At first, I thought “It will be piece of cake. I can do that in a couple hours”. Well, until things started to go all wrong… What is the problem? Choosing the photos is not an easy task. Not that the pictures are too good, but because they have lots of (good) memories in them. It’s difficult to have the criteria solely based on composition, colors, exposure and other technical stuff. I’ve tried hard to reach at least my Top 50, but couldn’t go farther than Top 60 (it was like 57 but decided to round up so it would sound better). If someone feel like giving me some hand and say something like “Fabio, take this one from the list, it’s is not so good” I will take any suggestions.
Rita Crane Photography: Italy / Venice / rain / umbrellas / people / street / Rainy Day in the Cannaregio, Venice
Made by Rita Crane Photography ~ returning slowly
Follow me on Twitter: twitter.com/#!/ritacranephoto Reposting this for contacts who may not have seen my Venice series. I've added a touch of blur to this scene in PS, to bring out the soft feeling of the rain. The kiosks selling umbrellas sprout up on days like this so one never need worry about being caught without an umbrella. It was a busy shopping day for locals in this neighborhood near the Guglie Bridge. What a pleasure to be able to enjoy the city on foot, with not a single car ever showing up, since they don't exist in Venice. There is a special peacefulness here, away from the big tourist area os San Marco Piazza, and a sense of village and community life undisturbed by traffic remains. I love the soft sounds of Venice: just people talking or the water lapping against the sides of the canals and rios. An occasional boat engine, but they are quiet because they are only allowed to move slowly so as not to create a big wake that further erodes the sides of the buildings. Not a single car! A magical place for sure!
Masks of Venice
Made by gracust
www.custance.zenfolio.com Just got back from my first trip to Venice...Wow! The city reminded me of a huge maze. You could easily get lost and we did! Even with the street map. Venice stretches across 117 small islands and has 150 channels and 409 bridges. Masks made the Venetial carnival unique. If you cannot identify the wearer of the mask, you do not know his social status. In this way Venice temporarily overturned her social order. Laws were passed to limit the wearing of the masks during the carnival period only. If they were worn out of that period severe penalties were enforced. This song by Jason Mruz was playing out of a couple of the cafes while we were walking round and it will forever remind me of my stay there. Funny how you relate songs to different places. Have a listen and I guarantee that you will be humming it for the rest of the day! www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkHTsc9PU2A More shots to follow during the next few days.

“Do you miss Italy?” I have been asked many times the last two weeks. Eh, not really. I miss aspects of it. The food, people, scenery and the ability to drive at ridiculous speeds. But I’m so glad to be home. See my kids. Sleep in my bed. Don’t get me wrong, I’m beyond blessed with the amount of travel I get to do, but like you all know, it’s always good to be home. The last couple of weeks I’ve been in training here at work and have been a poop when it comes to commenting on your amazing works. And uploading is blocked at work now, so I might have to start uploading at night. I’ll be here this week and will do my best, and then this weekend I’m off to amazing Wisconsin followed up next week by even more amazing Wichita, Kansas. Anyone at all from around Wichita that wants to show me around after work?
Rita Crane Photography: Italy / Venice / gondola / Rialto canal / Grand Canal / vintage / palazzo / architecture / evening / Rialto Gondolier, Venice
Made by Rita Crane Photography ~ returning slowly
[Four images of Venice for you here, Flickr friends. Scroll down for other three.] Thanks all for stopping by. Description: It was a cold winter evening and the gondolieres were going to dock their beautiful boats. One by one they came through this 'rio'..... on their way to the Grand Canal. They were so graceful and the boats were almost silent as they elegantly glided along. The profession of Gondoliere is passed from father to son. At present there are 400 gondolieres in Venice, I was told. At the height of the Venetian republic, there were 10,000 !! Visitors dealing with High Water (Aqua Alta) ... you can see the white Palazzo in my photo that is right near the Rialto Bridge in the beginning of the video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=cod6hHqEK3k&NR=1
Bella Venezia II
Made by soleá
Late Autumn In Venice (After Rilke) The city floats no longer like a bait To hook the nimble darting summer days. The glazed and brittle palaces pulsate and radiate And glitter. Summer's garden sways, A heap of marionettes hanging down and dangled, Leaves tired, torn, turned upside down and strangled: Until from forest depths, from bony leafless trees A will wakens: the admiral, lolling long at ease, Has been commanded, overnight -- suddenly --: In the first dawn, all galleys put to sea! Waking then in autumn chill, amid the harbor medley, The fragrance of pitch, pennants aloft, the butt Of oars, all sails unfurled, the fleet Awaits the great wind, radiant and deadly.

Window Catching the Sunshine, Venice
Made by Rita Crane Photography ~ returning slowly
Walking along the Strada Nuova, which is one of the main pedestrian 'boulevards' of Venice that crosses east-west from the Castello district to the train station, I was on my way to see the Ghetto Nuovo. I sat down for a minute to rest, and looking around, noticed this beautiful facade, with its elegant window and sculptural details. It had been raining, but there was a break in the clouds so that the low lying winter afternoon light brought everything out in beautiful relief. (Thanks everyone for stopping by. I look forward to responding to your comments on Your photostreams and catching up on what You have posted. Have a beautiful day!)

For my cousin and inspiring photographer, . I feel if he were here, he would've taken this shot. (Although he would've done it alot better.) The blue night skies and streaking trails of passing boats are mesmerizing. I really fell in love with night photography here in Venice. It's daunting to get into, but the rewards are amazing. ...of course, almost ANY picture you take in Venice is amazing.

With all the rain and grey sky I just want to jump on the plane and go … Somehow I often go to images from Venice . That city really is stuck in my mind. City like no other . I understand why so many creative souls found home in that wet city. There is so many places to explore , simple and sometimes not touched for generations . Unlike so many of other cities is in constant decay … that shows. It brings textures ...and I love it. I will visit Venice in the fall / winter. I think ( us much I'm not B&W guy ) this city will look so moody in B&W , with fog and rain.
Indecisione / Hesitation
Made by vorreiesserepaolorumiz
L'ho visto in un attimo. Era solo nel vicolo, lontano dal frastuono e dalle maschere. Mi è sembrato stupendamente sospeso tra l'andare ed il fermarsi, tra il muoversi ed il rinunciare. Una metafora della condizione umana in una stradina veneziana, insomma... I suddenly saw him. Alone in a side steet, away from the masks and the crowd of Venice in its Carnival period. Seemed to me he was floating between opposite instinct, opposite directions: to go, to stay. To move, to give up. Wonderful. A metaphor of human condition in a small, old street in Venice...
