Perpendicular lines are in short supply; yes the Campanile San Marco points rigidly to the heavens to demonstrate the city’s masculinity, but elsewhere walls bulge, waters snake, towers lean, pavements undulate, bridges curve, rooftops are domed.

Which is why seeing this run of windows suddenly appealed to me.  All the angles were where I might have expected them to be!

Simple pleasures.
