Weekly Photo Challenge : Contrasts


My photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge is taken in Venice harbour, and shows the contrast between what is called a ‘Super Yacht’, and one of the small craft, possibly a water taxi, that take people around the harbour.   I found an interesting article on ths yacht, which is owned by the richest lady in Austria, Heidi Horten.  She married the late Helmut Horten in 1966, when she was 25 and he was 57, and inherited his US 1 billion fortune in 1987, when she became a very rich widow, and has continued to grow her fortune.    You can read the story of the yacht here : http://www.superyachtfan.com/superyacht/superyacht-carinthia-vii.html.

How the other half lives!

    Lovely story on the super yacht but what about the contrast between the cruise ships and water taxis?? Its the cruise ships that worry me ( and a large proportion of the Venetians ) most. Great post!
