Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance


If anyone can dance, it is definitely a gondolier. Daily, he moves his sleek 36′ long gondola along the 26 miles of waterways and canals of Venice, Italy. For over 1,000 years, gondoliers have been offering passengers a beautiful water view of this amazing city. If you ever travel there, take a ride because you’ll never forget it. 🙂

    I’m going there this summer. I’ll have to make sure to take a ride.


  2. I’ve only been to Venice through Donna Leon’s books. I’d love to visit in person some day. I like your POV in this shot.

    Lovely shot. I am off to Venice in mid-April and can’t wait. A wonderful city.

    Your photo is a beautiful composition. I’m surprised at how wide that waterway is. And as lovely as the city looks in photos, I think I’d get tired of having to go everywhere in a boat! – like for groceries etc! But being able to visit is a dream come true. I’m sure I’ll never make it there myself.

  7. Wow, Judy, quite amazing and beautiful. A great skill…much like the old loggers here in northern New England poling their canoes down the Allagash. I think I would very much like to cruise Venice in a boat, a lovely way to see the town.

    I was just at a restaurant in Florida, which sits on a creek, and they have a gondola there! They said he’s Russian but he dresses like the stereotypical Italian gondolier and he takes the tourists out . . .

    He has the long, lithe body of a dancer. That is a job that certainly keeps a person in shape!
