I mentioned yesterday, while I greatly appreciate the unique architecture of Frank Gehry’s concert hall, it messes with my brain. I suppose I like order and structure, and symmetry is appreciated but not necessary. I do strive for balance, however. This building is asymmetrical and unbalanced — which I’m sure is the intention — I struggled with the composition.
One way to solve that problem is to pick out details. Like I did here. This is a closeup of the entry. While obviously, it’s not symmetrical, I think I’ve achieved some semblance of balance.
The curves and lines in monochrome create an abstract look. Ideally, I would like a taller and skinner composition, in retrospect. The top seems cut off. I could’ve spent a lot more time analyzing the angles and being more meticulous. It was getting late, however. If I believe my EXIF information, it was nearly 1am when I shot this.
