On my way back home after dropping my film rolls to the photolab, I spotted something unusual in one of the canals of Amsterdam. For a second I thought I was in Venezia...a gondola!
I ran and took a few snaps delighted by the uncommon sight. The boat docked and I caught up with the woman who was piloting the boat. She told me she was waiting for a couple who scheduled a photoshoot in her boat. She said she trained in Venice in a trade traditionally reserved for men. She owns and operates a rare gondola in Amsterdam. She was happy when I sent her pictures navigating the canals with her beloved gondola boat.
