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.
