PHOTOGRAPHING IN VENICE.

TA

BY W. I. LINCOLN ADAMS.

With Illustrations by the Author.

NUMBER 12

[graphic]

HE two places in Europe which stand out in my
memory most vividly, in connection with my photo-
graphic work there last year, are the picturesque
little fishing port of Clovelly in West England, and
Venice, the Bride of the Adriatic Sea.

I have already shown a few of my Clovelly pictures in THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TIMES; but have not as yet reproduced any of the photographs which I made on the Continent, with the exception of those which I took of the International Exhibition of Photography at Dresden, to illustrate my review of that notable show, for the readers of this magazine.

Venice is so full of picturesque subjects which the camera can adequately portray (all save the wonderful coloring of those glowing scenes), that it is a

veritable paradise for the man with the camera.

It is, of course, true, as it is very natural, that probably no city of Europe has been more photographed or painted, and many of the pictures are, therefore, very familiar and, perhaps, rather conventional.

I photographed many of the usual subjects, such as the Grand Canal at different points of its winding course through the city. The bridge called "The Rialto," the Browning, the Byron, and Desdemona's house on the Grand Canal; the wonderful Santa Maria della Salute; the picturesque San Giorgio Maggiore, situated on the island of the same name; and of course, most of all, the exquisite Doges' Palace, the Oriental St. Mark's Cathedral, and the world famous "Bridge of Sighs."

But I tried to photograph these, and other scenes, in special lights, and under conditions, which would preserve the particular interest attaching to the originals. This should, of course, always be the aim; but unfortunately the haste of the photographer sometimes makes it impossible to choose the best and most appropriate conditions for making the exposure.
