An Arrow Is An Arrow In Any Language. An arrow pointing the way to the Museo Civico Di Storia Naturale, Fontego dei Turchi, Venezia or should I say the Natural History Museum in the Turkish Foundation Building in Venice – with some street art thrown in for free. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/558c23e6e4b003b03c641510/1595487

Blue Moon, Piazzale Bucintoro 1 – 30126 Lido Di Venezia. The Oxford Dictionary defines one meaning of symmetry as “similarity or exact correspondence between different things”. The ‘Blue Moon’ was designed by Giancarlo de Carlo (1919-2005), professor emeritus at the Venice School of Architecture (Università Iuav di Venezia), founded in 1926 as the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia. Giancarlo de Carlo saw the role of the architect as inherently political and lectured on the need for the inclusion of users in the design process. He criticised contemporary architectural practice and academic society for being preoccupied with form and glossy image over social and life experience. His designs exemplify the dynamism of what he saw as consensus based physical and cultural necessity. In designing social housing, for example, he took into account the wishes of the intended occupiers – perfect symmetry. For me, he is the Beat Poet of Modern Architecture. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/5564b046e4b0271ee9748b9b/1576658

Leaving Venice – Looking Down. We were banking after take-off when I saw the speedboat on the canal. I tried to capture it between the two bridges. This was the best I could do in 1/125 sec. at 475–500 knots with a moving target. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/556c31aee4b0ce954cb1887a/1576705

Leaving Venice – Looking Up. The vapour trail seems to almost tear the photo in half. The sun was just out of sight over the roofs to my left, still illuminating the upper part of the building to my right. The composition was all there so I took the shot. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/556c31aee4b0ce954cb1887a/1576711

Blue Moon, Piazzale Bucintoro 1 – 30126 Lido Di Venezia. Shadow triangles move slowly across the wooden decking as the sun moves across the sky. The ‘Blue Moon’ was designed by Giancarlo de Carlo (1919-2005), professor emeritus at the Venice School of Architecture (Università Iuav di Venezia), founded in 1926 as the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia. The building project began in 1995 and the main construction was completed by 2002. It stands at the intersection between the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta (a road that crosses the Lido from the point where passengers from Venice disembark) and the coast road that goes from the Murazzi to the sand dunes of San Nicolò and serves the spiaggia comunale (public beach) at the northern end of the Lido. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/55718213e4b019d982cba15c/1563276
