About the Book
This book is a small sample of the images my wife & I have taken in Venice over the years. Venice is an incredibly photogenic city. Photo opportunites abound around every corner. Although the town is jammed with tourists during the day, the photographers magic hours of dawn & dusk are relatively unencumbered by the hoards. Alternately, the busy hours offer marvelous occasions for views into the bustle and lifestyle of a vibrant city.
Although this book does not cover surrounding areas, the traveler is encouraged to visit the islands of Murano & Burano as well as (time permitting) the Veneto.

In the late 1990's, he moved to digital which he continues to use today, attempting to evolve as the science evolves. His wife Jane was dragged kicking into photography, but has since become an ardent student of the subject.
