Burano, Italy, 2001. I'm not a history teacher, so I really don't know all about the story of the Panama Canal. But I do teach English and I like palindromes. So I saw this guy standing in front of the purple house. What's he doing? Is he a gondolier, a cook, a maitre 'd ? Whatever he does for a living, I don't really care. I just like this picture. Nikon FM 2, slide film.
