Photographer's Note

A ferro is the piece of metal on the front end of a gondola. It is not only a decoration, it is serves a function, acting as a counterweight to the gondolier who stands at the rear of the boat. Somehow this distinctive shape is quite symbolic of Venice - simple, elegant, strong, with a past shrouded in mystery.

This was taken at ISO 3200, to keep the depth of field large and the shutter speed high. I never thought I would use high ISO's much before I got the D700, but it came in handy time and again on my trip.
