the story behind the image

The story behind the image?  Perhaps she's a runaway bride.  Perhaps the man-in-the-tie is her Italian teacher.  Perhaps she is rowing from the Swiss side of Lake Lugano to the Italian side -- to escape an arranged marriage to a wealthy but boring Swiss banker.  Perhaps she will live happily ever after with the multi-lingual man-in-the-tie on the shores of Lake Como, sipping champagne in a very small but very lovely garden.  Perhaps.
