It is becoming a habit but great again Micheal ( I would not have thought about a picture like this but you do.) The only trouble is when it is on "paper" then I see things I should have done but thats easy . I didn't get the the original idea. Perhaps from my days as architect. When you put a line on paper everyone falls over it but before everyone is waiting for the egg you laid. If the frame was so more to the right that the diagonals of the front face just comes out of the corners just left upper and below and right below it is a still more minimalistic print.The gray's are fantastic. ( If you don't like my remarks please say so I will stop straightaway).
Thanks for the thoughtful and thought-provoking comments, don't stop :-)I went back and cropped the image to correspond to your suggestion and it occurred to me that the bigger issue is the placement of the dark corner near the middle of the frame - it should be lower, to provide a more balanced, stable look. But if I crop it that way, the other elements in the picture are magnified, not in a pleasing way (the dark & light bands in the upper left get fatter), so I will have to re-shoot it to get the desired effect - but I don't know if I can replicate it...I wanted it to be unclear what the image "is." There's an ambiguity here that I liked, at times I only see 2 dimensional lines and shapes (and tone) and other times it appears to be a monumental 3D concrete structure, and again since I know what it is, I sometimes see it for what it actually is. Thanks again, s.c.
If I didn't know you were a photographer I might've thought this could be a graphite drawing or perhaps a collaboration between Man Ray and Frank Stella.
