Another Rail-Walker

Here's a quick little capture of a gondolier walking the rail between boats with passengers aboard near the Accademia bridge.  What caught my eye with this one, was how he did it right on the edge; the pusiol (that arm-piece which the brass cavallo rests atop) is in place - giving the gondolier maybe an inch or two to step. 
I'm sure this guy does that rail-walk on a daily basis.
