Venice – Gino Mazzuccato Glassworks, Murano

Here are a few shots taken in the Gino Mazzuccato glass making factory on the island of Murano, located about a mile north of Venice.  The Murano glassmakers are renowned for producing some of the most important brands of glass worldwide.  Having originally being located on Venice, the glassmakers were ordered by the government in 1291 to move to Murano owing to the increased risk of fire to Venice’s infrastructure, which was predominantly constructed of wood.  Should you ever visit Venice then it is likely that Murano will form part of your itinerary.

Paris – Église Saint Germain-l’Auxerrois

This little gem of a Gothic church is situated opposite the Louvre and, conveniently for me, was directly adjacent to the hotel we were residing in.  The church which dates around the 12th century originally belonged to the Louvre when the latter was a royal palace.  A lot of restoration has been carried out throughout the centuries and the only surviving original feature is the impressive bell tower,captured below on a slightly murky day.  Certainly not to be ignored when visiting the Louvre.  Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois 9 Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois© [John Mallaney] and [jdmallaney In The Frame], [2012].

Tewkesbury Abbey

Whilst visiting family in the area primarily for a Sunday Roast, it seemed rude not to pop into Tewkesbury Abbey for a quick visit.  Result?  Stunningly pretty and more importantly for a nominal fee photography is allowed!  The following are just a flavour of the many I took during the relatively short but enjoyable visit.  Lessons learnt?  Remember to carry my tripod!  Enjoy.Tewkesbury Tewkesbury © [John Mallaney] and [jdmallaney In The Frame], [2012].
