Vote for Venice!

A photograph I took in Venice made it into Submissions: Take a Picture of Your Favorite View, by GOOD, the online version of GOOD magazine.  Check out the link here: http://www.good.is/post/submissions-take-a-picture-of-your-favorite-view/, and vote!  While I am tempted to ask for your vote (my photo is # 15) I would be happy if you vote at all, as I think all of the photos are lovely.

Tiber Water Level Update

Since leaving Rome I haven’t been able to keep track of the water levels of the Tiber, which has been frustrating as December is historically when the the floods occur.  The thought that this is happening in Rome, without me… well, it irks me.  What doesn’t irk me is the annual Roman tradition where divers plunge into the Tiber on New Years Day to welcome the new year.  It is a tradition that dates back to 1946, when a lifeguard who was trying to find work leapt into the waters of the Tiber from the Cavour Bridge to show off his skills.  What I like about this photo is not the most recent icy plunge, but that it gives me an update on what the river is up to.
