Shot at Jawahar Kala Kendra - Jaipur. I took the stairs near the Sudarshan Art gallery area and headed straight to the terrace. While I was climbing up the stairs, I saw this Zig-Zag of lines being formed. The formation was only a visual one, as these are in fact the walls of two separate terraces. I thought why not take a multi-layer shot and connect the two walls in the frame. I focused and took a few shots and bang...

I  created an English alphabet "The Alphabet Z" . Also see: Colored Version

When you start shooting multi-layer shots, your creativity as a photographer starts to reach new heights. Experiment, and try and visually connect different things, I am sure you will have a lot of fun.

This is Minimalism as Simple Geometry. Simple geometric shapes being, the three lines.
