Ready and Waiting

All up and down the Grand Canal you'll see them, ready and waiting for passengers.
They are long and sleek, glossy black ambassadors of the city of Venice.
Thirty-six feel long (give or take), asymmetric, and each built by hand,
there is nothing in the world quite like a Venetian gondola.

This photo was shot at the servizio across from the railway station. 
More photos from that sequence can be seen in the post"
