Default Geometry in Composition: Bothell landing Amphitheater

About 3 feet.

As I was walking about in the same area as the bridge there is this amphitheater. As I was walking thru it I suddenly realized I was at a focal point of sound. Looking around I could see that this was the focal point of the amphitheater. But even at this point I still need to decide where to take the photo.

As there is not much color (just a rust stain) I thought BW would show the texture better. If others would like to see it in color I can post that later.

Painting is an additive art. The artist adds to the canvas until they stop with their version of reality. Digital photography is subtractive art. First we throw away 90 percent of reality then remove what is left bit by bit until we have only the reality we wish to show. Flickr is like fun. PPG is like work. A camera is a machine of light and time with the purpose of capturing a luminous moment. Like the eye it is a tool of the mind.

Almost abstract in its effect with the geometrical shapes.

It took me a moment to realize that these were two separate shots. I'm not sure what you you call those paving segments other than segments of a circle.
