Murano Glass Shop

Glass Blowers

A different kind of picture from Italy.  Taken from Murano Island off of Venice where much of the fancy hand blown glassware that the place is famous for is made.  I didn’t make it out to the island when I was in Italy in 2001, so it was kind of my goal to get out there in the 2011 version of the trip.  I think it’s kind of a cool picture of the shop, and I’m entertained by the apparent lack of concern by anyone to the cigarette hanging out of the one worker’s mouth.
