More High Tide Photos
Venice is a city that has adapted to life surrounded by water. With no cars within the city everything comes and goes by boat. It's been interesting to see the various types of boats transporting everything from ice cream to construction debris. Equally impressive are the skilled hand truck divers who cart material down the city walk ways. These folks have to navigate narrow and crowded walk ways and bridges that infrequently have ramps. Adding a high tide probably just makes it that job even more challenging.
