A Black and White/ Monochrome Minimalist Photograph of a Street Lamp's shadow falling on the corner of a building forming a Triple Split.


This Minimalism as Less Elements Minimalist Photo, is a corner shot of a building taken during a sunny afternoon. 

The Light and Shadow games played by nature, are always interesting and this Minimalist Photograph captures that. Look at how beautifully the shadow of the lamp got split by three lines. I spotted this Triple Split near the Akshardham temple in Vaishali Nagar.


This photograph has depth and dimension and therefore is way better than flat photos. You may try and include more depth by getting really creative with angles. The highlights, as you can see are quite bright and some portion has lost a bit of detail. It is actually just on the limits. A step further and the details would be lost completely. Why I did this? to make the shades of gray stand out among each other and to show clearly the light and shadow differential.
