Ponte Vecchio

I took this photo ages ago, when I was in college and visited Italy one summer. It is of the famous Ponte Vecchio in Florence.

It's probably dumb to post a subject that has inspired hundreds of photographs lovelier than this one, but I love this photo not only for the texture of the water, but because of the two men having a leisurely chat over a scooter helmet. How do you say, "that's the life!" in Italian.

I can't afford a Vespa, but I think I'm going to start carrying around a helmet with me, tucked coyly under my arm.
