versace, venice

One never quite knows what one's going to find next in Venice - today, on the way to the vaporetto stop, it was Versace, apparently celebrating Marilyn Monroe, followed in quick succession by - first - an Asian couple, with the woman having some difficulty negotiating some bridge steps whilst wearing a voluminous antique beaded wedding gown, and then another happy couple, the woman wearing a more conventional, but tightly fitting wedding dress, and kissing for the cameras in St Mark's Square.  Is the first Monday in June some good-luck wedding day?  Of course, with neither of them could one tell if this was for real, or was for wedding gown advertising, or whatever.  Maybe living in LA has taught me that nothing involving a camera is ever necessarily real.
