I think this guy likes green.
...And maybe golf.
In fact if I were standing there on the fondamenta, I'd be tempted to reach for a putter and climb aboard, and I don't even golf
(well, maybe miniature golf now and then).
I'm having a little fun here, but I should also give credit to a gondolier who made a bold choice with the color of both his seats and his tapeto (that carpet I'd like to putt on). He has a boat that's easily identified, and might even have an added appeal with the golf crowd.
Let's take a closer look:
Side-tied to the gondola with green carpet, is a boat with more subtle colors. I like the deep blue upholstery and silver cavalli. We can also see that the owner of the second boat has a thing for striped remi.
I shot this photo in '09 from a passing vaporetto.
We'd just passed the fish market while plowing toward the Rialto.
In fact just a few boat lengths further, the photo of gondoliers trying to avoid splashing water was taken by Martina Zane,
right after an ambulance boat blasted by.
A small sign in the shot caught my eye, so I did some investigating.
The sign says "Naranzaria", and it's for a wine bar there.
I've never been to the place, and don't know how it rates, but I'd like to check it out next time I'm in the neighborhood.
