I wonder if this is the architectural photo equivalent of modern 20th century abstract art. You know the kind. Modern art, hailed as a work of genius that looks like random lines, squares or stick figures. People in the know insist that these kindergarten-esque art pieces are the results of years of study and breakout innovation.
I suppose a photo of a nearly empty concrete garage can be as incomprehensible as those modern art pieces. But I do admit that I like this picture. There’s an organic beauty to raw concrete, with its texture imbued with years of daily use. Here, formed into geometric patterns, it’s a decidedly modern structure, engineered for strength, and I’m sure, earthquake resistance. After all, I took this picture in California.
I made this photo at the start of my photowalk with Dan. Shooting prematurely, perhaps, even before getting out of our parking area. But as I continue with photography, it’s the odd and quirky views that excite equally or maybe even more. Tourist like snapshots of famous landmarks are fine, but you see a lot of those, all the time. How many times do you see parking garages?
I only wish that this parking garage was completely empty. I think it would’ve looked even better without any cars.
