Dolce far niente (Weekend Street/Reflections # 88)

 Venice, Italy

Soaking up some winter sunshine before he speeds away in his Riva Aquarama boat. 

Riva's slogan - “Sun, sea, joy of living!"

Dolce far niente is an Italian phrase that directly translates to sweet doing nothing.”

Definition: “pleasant relaxation in carefree idleness”

Have a good weekend!

Now you can link reflections and/or street photography. 

Please no posed pictures, portraits, animals, etc. unless there is a reflection.

The last sun of summer perhaps. Getting his daily Vitamin D James. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a great week ahead.

I like the emptiness of this composition. Alone with his thoughts.

Yes, he is doing as little as possible before jumping into his Riva Aquarama, the Ferrari of the boat world. It is possibly the most beautiful boat ever built.

I like it, what a great scene. I hope she doesn't have to wait long but she can enjoy the scenery.
