The Renaissance workshop with Jovic & Beckstead, Dubrovnik

  

I had such a great day at the workshop and could hardly get to sleep last night!  We spent the morning going over images from everyone, David and Gordon providing very positive and helpful information and critiquc, then we were out shooting for about 5 hrs.  As David said learning to play with light, challenging our knowledge, our gear as well as our comfort zone.  I can hardly wait to see what we do today!

terrace restaurant, Dubrovnik

Wandering the streets of Dubrovnik yesterday we found this wonderful little terrace restuarant near the city wall, we have’t yet had time to try out the food, but hopefully tonight after the workshop, if I am not too tired.  There is about 8 flights of very steep steps up to the restuarnt.   The reward, other than the food will be the view, so you can be pretty sure that I will make the walk and hope to have a picture tomorrow for you.

Jazz In Dubrovnik

Bill and I went out for breakfast, well bruch actually.  The Stadun or main street in the old town of Dubrovnik is lined with cafes, we choose a table new are St Blaise’s Church.  These guys were playing Jazz for the crowd, a great way to start the day. They were selling cd’s but unfortunately I didn’t pick one up or get the name of the band!  I thought they would be there for a while, left to see Rector’s Place, and when we came back to the street they were gone.  Maybe they will be back tomorrow.

oct 7, 2011 – I have since been in touch with the double base player, the group is called the Dubrovnik Jazz Trio you can hear their music at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ5KxFLIWNM, give them a listen!

Croatian Folk Dancers

Last night we attended the cultural center in Dubrovnik, just outside the city walls, a short walk from our apartment to watch the Croatian folk dancers. Katrina, the young girl who is our hostess dances with the group and told us about the show.  It was a great evening. 100 Kuna per person, I am still not sure what that means in thers of my money – but it is about 13 Euro!

Dubrovnik at Sunset

Don’t picture fool you there are lots of great beaches, this is a little bar where you can sit among the rocks and watch the sunset.  There are not more that a table or two on each rock and the rope light shows you were to walk, the view is spectacular.

Venice Gondolas

Venice Italy at sunrise, a quiet morning, before the tourists are up and about, the gondolas rocking quietly with the waves.

Saint Mark’s Square, Venice Italy

I have to say that there are two times a day when to visit the square.  My favorite in early morning at sunrise – before the crowds.  The light is lovely, the square is quiet and you can truely appreciate the beauty.

Rio San Barnaba, Venice Italy

The travel guides suggest that the Rio San Barnaba is one of the prettiest canals in the area, it is home to the floating barge crammed with fruit and vegetables that was featured earlier in the blog. Quiet at night the canal reflects the lights of the shops and restaurants that line it giving it a friendly and peaceful feeling.

Green Grocer, Venice style

Groceries, along with almost everything in Venice Italy is brought in on a boat – it would seem that in Venice the consumer unloads the fruits and vegetables!!!!
