Fish, Fog and Fowl, Campo Santa Margherita, This Morning


After a couple of days of needed rain (and, fortunately, not too much of it), the fog has returned, blanching the city's colors, softening its edges, making certain vistas seem like little more than a series of sheer overlapping printed screens lined up one behind the other. As if even in the real world perspective is just a theatrical trick, more about juxtaposition than actual distance.

    1. Yes, it's generally a cold fog here at this time of year--I suppose there is sometimes a kind of haze in the air when it's warm, but nothing like this.
