During this visit to Venice, I’m not taking many photos, being busy evading those darn tourists and all.
Here’s a selection to show that I haven’t been completely slack.
I wonder what this officer spied up above us? And, is she deciding she needs a manicure at the same time? Oh, and check out the most recent hairstyle for blokes on the fellow in the background.
We went back to see the maestro (Carlo) pour some bronze pieces, at the Valese Foundry. I never get tired of watching the whole process. It sure was warm in the foundry that afternoon.
This is rather hot, I reckon.
Did he buy a watermelon, or not?
The fellow who operates the hoist that lowers the Pink Lioness dragon boat took advantage of their tardy arrival to catch some rest in his hammock. I was very envious.
And, here come those Lionesses, ready to get out and row. They’re in serious training for the Vogalonga (literally a very ‘long row’ of 42 km) which takes places on 24 May. Some of you will recognise a familiar face. She was looking mighty serious that day.
Just a rather nice incised piece, hanging around.
And, an interesting piece of real estate.
