Weekend in black and white

I took this photo on a very chilly -close to freezing actually- April morning, at around 6.30 or 7 am, looking for coffee. In Venice. So, I guess this guy and his dog might have been going to work, in the San Polo area of town.
As St Mark is the holy patron of Venice, many many (and many more) men are called Marco. So this might well be Marco, from San Polo... Well, in San Polo anyway.
I finally found an open bar shortly after . Un espresso per piacere, Signore!

To my great joy, I'll be back there in a few days. Venezia is like home to me.

More b&w here.
And more weekend reflections here.
