— On the Road
July 5, 2007 — Lucky me! We're back
in Italy. My husband is here for business and I am here to shoot. We're currently
in Venice, which is new to both of us. I'd say that only God could create a place
like Venice, but in fact, man did it himself. Incredible.
Yesterday afternoon I encountered a Great
Dane along one of the canals. His owner spoke no English. I handed her a business
card and convinced her to allow me to photograph the dog. He wanted no part of
it, much to the amusement of the onlookers. I meowed like a cat to get his attention.
No reaction, except more laughter from the locals. Obviously, I don't know
how to meow in Italian. Either that, or "Luigi" just wanted to give me a hard
time. There are plenty of dogs here in Venice. (I've even seen them riding the
gondolas.) There are even more pigeons, though. Thousands of them.
More to follow as time allows...
