From Venice, Italy to Venice Beach, a sign is often the first thing you see when you arrive or are close to your destination.
Coming in to Venice by rail, I shot this at the station.
Anybody see the sign in the background for the rowing club in Cannaregio?
And appropriately enough, I shot this photo while stuck in traffic on the 405 freeway - an unavoidable experience if you live in the LA area.
Unfortunately there are no rowing clubs in Venice, California (at least not yet).
