Day 331 - Angle, reflection and distortion
I've become much more aware of the existence and impact of lines (both straight and curved) on the way we see things and this shot is a good example of it. The window appears to be at an angle and, in fact, seems to be tilted slightly upward toward the sky. It isn't, of course: it's on the flat vertical plane of the wall. But it looks that way because I was standing so close to the building when I took the picture.
If that isn't enough, I also like the colours in the stone that come through in this picture. There's red, orange and yellow in there, bringing even more life to the shot.
