You really need to carry a camera about the whole time in Venice. There is always something new to photograph. I was only popping out to collect a train ticket half an hour ago, and it was starting to rain, so after some thought I left my camera at home. And just around the corner I came upon a dog in a gondola. Sitting on the cushions in solitary state, being rowed along by a gondolier. He barked (the dog, not the gondolier) to make sure he was noticed. I did my best with my mobile phone camera, but it couldn't do justice to the spectacle.
