Venice, Italy – the Front Door

Venice, Italy – the Front Door

Piece description from the artist

While in Venice, I made the ridiculous touristy mistake of renting a small boat with the intent of exploring little canals and taking photos alone. Being an inexperienced motorboat pilot wasn't bad enough. The small maneuvering space of these little canals was tricky, and I caught some lovely colorful Italian phrases uttered to me by boat owners that I bumped into. And the large wide-open canals were frothy with more boats than I could count. I returned to the boat rental place a sweaty, nervous wreck, but with a few hundred photos that I took through my camera without even looking through the finder. This scene, as serene as it appears, came from that silly adventure.
