Siena, Via S. Acata

Siena is unusual in several respects. Notable are its relatively narrow, curving streets. The major streets appear to follow the ridge lines, with minor streets falling away on either side. I believe that this is one such side street.

Again, we have a gate framing a view, this time of the principal campanile in Siena. The foreground street curves gently back and forth but does not disappear around a corner for some distance. In fact, just as it disappears, it leads the eye to another gate at the foot of the hill.

To pick a nit, the dormer roof that intersects the line of the campanile should be trimmed back until it no longer cuts the campanile from this vantage point - here again, the photographer has chosen the best spot.
