photo by Martina Zane
Martina snapped this shot on Saturday, August 21st, of a moto-topo testing the limits of overhead clearance.
These big cargo boats are to Venice and her sister islands, what delivery trucks are to Manhattan. They bring in the goods - whatever they may be.
A closer examination of this photo shows that this boat has several different types of supplies on board - on their way to one or more destinations in the Veneto.
I asked Martina if the guy made it under the bridge and she wrote:
He did make it! he's great! We were on the vaporetto to go to burano. Less than half a mile on the left of the image there is the dock of burano. The bridge you see is the one connecting Burano to Mazzorbo.
I wonder what happens when one of these guys doesn't make it.
