I collect Vintage Barbie Dolls and was going to photograph some of them. I found this on you tube and thought it would make a great introduction. I just love this old commercial. My little sister and I played with our Barbies non-stop until we just grew out of them. Well, that's not true, I still play with them and have been collecting the dolls and fashions for a while.
There are no cars in Venice, Italy. The streets ( if that's what you call the pedestrian walkways) are not wide at all. Store windows are sort of "in your face" and they use all kinds of displays to get you to wander in and shop. The food stores are enticing enough with the aromas that waft through the doorways but you can see what they are selling as you pass by, and most of the time you cannot just pass by. They will make a sandwich for you on the crustiest of breads with the best cheeses you've ever tasted. I'd rather eat from one of these stores than at a fancy restaurant, especially for lunch.
