Campo ‘dei Miracoli’

8x10 print

Printed with archival inks on

Canson PhotoGloss Premium Paper


Each time I visit Venice, I make it a point to return to the cosy campo in this photo. One thing I like to do here is photograph the window display of a shop that sells glass trinkets: beads, frames, goblets, lanterns & more. The pastel-colored glasses shown on the ‘January’ page of my CALENDAR were part of a former window display, and today’s item features one from this past summer. Besides the glass items in the window, you can also distinguish several details in the campo itself. I love the many different layers that make up window reflections . . . in this one, the lanterns hanging in the window mingle with the foliage of the tree outside, and the café umbrellas, the shops across the way & a sliver of the church (at left) all become interleaved among the shop’s shelves of frames and vases.

The photo is printed on 270g professional glossy photo paper, emphasizing the reflective nature of the composition. The image itself measures 8 x 10 inches (20.1 x 25.4 cm), and is surrounded by a narrow white border. The print is titled & signed on the back, and packaged in a clear archival sleeve.

28 - Venice Reflections [III] Campo ‘dei Miracoli’ - 8 x 10 Print

A friend first introduced me to the charming campo of ‘miracles’  when she sent me a b&w postcard of the picturesque square and told me she knew I would very much enjoy the atmosphere (and the little bookshop). At the time I had yet to visit Venice, but I made a mental note to have a look when I finally made it there.

On the drizzly last day of my first Venetian adventure I

had a chance to see the campo, which is adjacent to the

gem of a church known as Santa Maria dei Miracoli (the

inspiration for the more poetic nickname of what is more

accurately called Campo di Santa Maria Nova). Even on

the rather dismal, late-October morning, I could see

what a special corner of Venice this was. A couple of

trees grew in the center, protecting the benches from

rain (and sun), the patio tables of a café were arranged

next to a narrow canal, and the marble-clad church apse backed into one end of the campo. And there was the bookshop, where I found the same b&w postcard my friend had sent me . . . and chose one for her.
