This is perfect. I will think about it for some time and tell you why I think it's perfect. But it's one of _these_ photos.
As Martin said…(I'm always late!)
Martina is right. It spoke to me the moment I saw it.
Thanks. It might be interesting that I saw the subject and knew there was something there right away, but in fact made pictures from three quite different vantage points. This is the closest and most simplified of the three.
It speaks to me, too. I think the walls' textures could work from many angles, but the sleeping giant, neatly aligned in two parking spaces, is probably what determined the composition (Weston's term -- "the strongest way of seeing.")scott
Perfection in an imperfect world...
... not to forget the white window frame on the right, corresponding in colour but not in shape with Kirk's "sleeping giant". Without the white square something essential would be missing I think. It's exactly where it should be in the photo.
