'Venetian Jewel' featured in The Arts Business Institute Holiday Gift Guide

Today, I received a lovely note from Carolyn Edlund, Executive Director of The Arts Business Institute. 'Venetian Jewel' was selected for their 3rd Annual Great Handmade Holiday Gift Guide.  Check out the artisan offerings at and consider a handmade Holiday gift for someone special.

I remember my amazement at this scene when I first took this photograph. The sheer beauty was only matched by the sense of community, as one observed locals and tourists gathering to spend an afternoon at the Piazza of the Basilica. They came to light a candle, to pray, to select an art gift at the market, or share a dolci and espresso. Always, the musicians added to the magic.

Thank you to Carolyn and The Arts Business Institute for the nod!

'The Paris Collection' featured in Photography Blogger

Much gratitude to author Stephanie Kay-Kok of Photography Blogger for featuring selections from The Paris Collection on the popular Photography Blogger (10.25.2013).

Beautiful Paris, France – Travel Photography by Mary Serantoni

Mary Serantoni is a fine art travel photographer who’s originally from Chicago and now lives in Phoenix. She loves photographing the beauty of European streets. Her pictures of Venice, Italy look like soft paintings, while her shots of Paris, France are sharper, focusing on specific details like the poetry of a colorful door or a picturesque metro sign. Rather than showing grand scenes, Mary captures the beauty of Paris through these lovely details.
To see more of Mary’s photography, visit her websiteblog or Etsy shop.
