Tradition & Technology


The gondolier plays a traditional role in Venice but, they stay up to date with today's technology.

Terrific photo! Pierre of Venice Daily Photo sometimes posts a photo of a gondolier and dedicates it to me. I think you can figure out how I feel about these sexy looking gondoliers!

What would happen to us if all our cell phones quit working at the same time? Hummm, that might be a good movie plot.

Can't miss that hat.

He is probably checking his text messages from whomever will be his date this evening.

I like this shot. It kind of tells a story. I always think it's odd when I see a person on horseback using the cell phone.

Really like this photo. The window boxes are charming. I will have to agree with Kate the gondoliers are nice to look at!

Lowell said...

Another superb composition. In this case the red hat band makes the picture. You're very good at this stuff!!!
