The first in my series of black and white street photos for the next three days. This image of a gondolier was snapped near the old Jewish Ghetto in Venice, Italy. This was the world's first ghetto. Even the word "Ghetto" is derived from the Italian word for foundry because iron foundries were in the area. Jews were locked into the ghetto and only allowed out for a few hours each day.
I am indebted to photog friend, Elaine for the title because she once wittily asked if a gondolier in my photo had stolen his hat from Little Bo Peep.
