lagoon transportation (a study in contrasts)

First, here's the lagoon once upon a time ... a quiet place ... as depicted in a fresco in my pensione, reflected in mirrors on the stairs.

And now here's the monstrous cruise ship that sailed serenely and heavily past whilst we were having conference lunch - I just wish that I was going still to be in Venice this weekend, and could go on the big demonstration against cruise ships.

Privileged tourism - this was taken on an hour long evening tour of San Marco this evening.

And the picture that I didn't take -  both wishing I had, and very glad I didn't - was of an elderly, drunk man, in broad sunlight, pissing on a completely indifferent pigeon (near the Rialto).
