Yesterday was our first full day in Venice and I’m so incredibly happy to finally be here! At breakfast, I was reunited with the Don coffee machine and it was the best moment of my life.
As a class, we took the vap from the Zattere over to the Giudecca where we visited the Sebastiao Salgado show at the Tre Oci. His work consisted of beautiful large format, silver gelatin prints separated into categories based on continent. They were absolutely incredible. His use of landscape and animals to create texture and form was mind blowing.
For lunch, Nathan and I walked over to Da Gino’s, my favorite panini place just around the corner, and then over to Saint Marks before photo class. We then had our first photo class in the classroom where the basics class learned how to import and edit their photos using bridge.
After a quick nap sesh, a large group of us headed over to San Trovaso and where I ordered Ramin and my go to pasta - pesto spaghetti. Then it was Campo Santa Margherita time. It was Ashlyn’s 21st birthday, so the whole crew, including the Andrea’s came out to celebrate. It was the first time we’ve really got to relax and chill as a group so it was super fun.
This morning we’re off to the Lido, so more to come tonight!
