Converging verticals

Cathedral in St. Paul

A friend asked what is meant by converging verticals. I post this picture as an example. If I drew a line from the steeples and kept going up eventually they would meet or converge. I think it is good enough to say the picture is crooked. This is what happens when a side angle lens is used and it isn’t kept level. Photographs can be straightened when they are processed but this one is two messed up to bother.
