142. The People of Venezia

Venice is a place of such singular and breathtaking beauty that one just wanders about, awe-struck. I’m amazed I didn’t walk into a canal, I spent so much time watching everything but where I was going.

I was particularly interested in how people navigate the place, both figuratively and literally. How do people go about their days? Here are some photos of daily life in Fairyland.
