At the Base of a Bridge

 Explore Venice and you'll notice a few consistencies - like gondolas moored near bridges.
Here we seea pair of them stationed adjacent to the Ponte delle Guglie - one of only two bridges that span the Cannaregio Canal.  
Sure, Tre Archi seems to get a lot of the attention in that area (at least on this blog), but the Ponte delle Guglie is a great place to set up operations.  This is one of the most crossed bridges near the train station, 
and probably one of the first places that visitors pass by as they venture into the city on foot.
Like so many other spots in La Serenissima, I'm sure this mooring location is coveted, maybe fought over, and I can understand why.
What a great location to run gondolas.
