Geometry on a Rainy Day

Geometry on a rainy day

Last week I was coming out the Subway on Denver Avenue when this bicyclist came riding by and I snapped the pic. Later on I realized how much I liked the geometry of the pic the stripes in the road, the curbs the cars lined up, the lines of the parking garage across the way with the rectangular openings. The trees even have geometry. The bottoms of the canopies are lined up and the tops of the canopies form a big wedge and the white Oxy Building with its lattice design.  Against this we have the bicyclist with his green helmet, the bright red car, and if you look carefully, the gas lights across the road.

Have you ever liked a photograph but then had to figure out why?

    Oh, what a great, colorful, autumn capture!! I love it!! And, yes, I have taken photos, liked them and then wondered just what it was about them that I liked so much!!! Glad you asked this!! I thought maybe it was just weird, old me!! Hope you’re having a great weekend!!

    I do this all the time. Sometimes, I’m aware of why I take a photo, other times, I only realize when I see it on the computer what I really like about it. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your Family, Alan. The Grand are here for the week so not sure how much I’ll be on the computer!
