It's common for a gondolier to put a foot on the wall - they do it all the time in Venice.  This curious looking move allows them to stay as close to the wall as possible without bumping into it.
One afternoon, while crossing the bridge at San Moise,
I saw this guy pulling the move...on a pole!

I'd never seen it done before, but the way he did it made me think that he probably executes the move several times a day.

Bravo, foot-to-post guy!
