#363: Stencils in Venice

Venice, Italy

A dash of pleasing, well-tempered Venetian symmetry is definitely in order after yesterday's exercise in the skewed, the slapdash, and the unashamedly shoddy. Enjoy your tasteful Italian Monday palindrome before I plunge you back into the shambolic underbelly of New York City on Tuesday.

This is just european shoddy, the europeans being masters of chipped-plaster-shoddy.

Indeed. The difference between European shoddy and American shoddy = stencils and good plaster. Oh, and thousands of years of history.

Love the inner space of those numbers. Hoping to get back to Venice this year (to re-visit my avatar).

Aw, a reunion with your avatar! And all this time, I thought it was made of chocolate. Where exactly was that taken, by the way?

Tis inedible porphyry. Next time you're in Venice have a close look at the Basilica S. Marco.
