Busy Waters

Here's a snap of typical morning activity, just south of the Rialto Bridge.
If the Grand Canal has a "choke point", it's here.
This spot is a favorite place for both water taxis and gondolas,
vaporetto activity is fierce, and it's a bit of a blind turn beyond the bridge.
Not surprisingly, some of the more dramatic accidents have happened here.
Suffice to say, anyone who pilots a boat in these waters,
had better be a good captain.
