Excerpt from Seeing and Knowing

S0 in Venice from a window on the Grand Canal, where it opens toward the lagoon, I was looking diagonally across to San Giorgio. Steamboats and motor launches were going up and down and were so big in shape and so clearly articulated, that even at a certain distance I recognized what they were. But what was it that picked them tight? Again, as at Siena, spots of colour suggesting ?ower gardens rather than what I unques tioningly assumed they were, namely passengers. I knew what they must be from experience, not from what was presented to my View. At the same time I kept seeing zigzaggy criss-crossilhou ettes and my eyes alone could not have told me that they were gondoliers stand ing and rowing in their gondolas. (1, 2)
