White Floorboards

While crossing a bridge near Campo San Maurizio,
I noticed this gondolier rowing indietro (in reverse). I shot a few frames and then noticed his white floorboards.
Most gondolas have red or blue floorboards, but now and then some guy rows by something different.
Unique colors often indicate a privately-owned gondola, and the boat in question sure looks nice enough to be someone's pride and joy.
As much as I like the look of the white floor,
I don't envy the guy who has to keep it clean.

The old "I don't have time to put 5 coats of red paint on these; this primer looks good enough" trick.

I like it.
