Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #146: Focusing on the Details

You are probably familiar with the image of Piazza San Marco in Venice: the facade of the church, the bell tower, the arches of Doge’s Palace, the saint and lion on their columns.

But taking a look at the details of some of these famous landmarks was a fun way to explore them!

From Dingle.

A lovely example of hand-cut Irish crystal.  We were able to watch some being cut at Sean Daly’s workshop. These pieces were recently done, not polished or anything yet, and you can still see the black guide marks.

He nicely tried to hand me some to feel the weight, and I was like uh-uh, I am not holding that, I will drop it or break it or something.  Someone else in our tour group can attest to its nice weight.
