Anyone for Venice?

I don't know if any of you blogging folk are taking a trip to Venice this year, but if you are, there looks to be a cracking exhibition on at The Palazzo Grassi Museum.

This 18th century gorgeous Venetian classic is located on the Grand Canal.
Until 31st December they are showing an Irving Penn exhibition, which I heard about by chance through Twitter, and of course felt duty bound to mention to you, my internet chums.

For the photographic aficionados amongst you, the exhibition contains 90 platinum prints, 30 gelatin silver prints, 4 colourful dye transfer prints and 17 internegatives, all of which are being shown for the first time to the public.

It's a shame if you can't make it to Venice, but you could attend one of my workshops in East Sussex instead, almost the same really.

A hello and welcome to Helen who has joined my little band of google followers.

  4. I love the Margaret Lockwood jumper pattern - I wonder if you remember her? You're probably even too young to remember her daughter Julia!

  5. The only time I've seen Margaret in a film was on tv in The Wicked lady, yonks ago mind. Didn't know she had a famous daughter as well.
