I might have found a new rucurring theme worth exploring.

With this photo I wanted to combine several composition techniques to make a successful image. This is a very contrasty image due to the black interior curtain combined with the strong reflections from the white walls in the building in front. The light and dark elements advance thru the image in perpendicular axes crossing in the lower left third of the image. Each has a different element of repetition or pattern; the building contains the scaffold and the windows, while the curtain fabric intersects itself thousands of times.

Today we temporally switch gears to show this daylight image. I new I was going to upload an image tonight, so I decided to look for something to shoot while daylight was still available. I came across this church, old style, with a new glass skyscraper as background, that some of you will recognize. Love contrasts!
