Here, we've pulled away from the city out into the lagoon, on the vaporetto from the Fondamento Nuove stop, heading toward the islands of Murano and Burano.
The Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta detta I Gesuiti - Church of Santa Maria Assunta - is silhouetted against the sky. The saints and angels atop the white stone facade strive and reach upward, wind-blown and bristling above the red tile roofs, still visible as we pull away from the city.
We are off to the islands.
Here the vaporetto's wake sluices the ruins of some medieval building off the island Madonna del Monte.
