A Monochrome Minimalist Photograph of the abstract form/shadow of the round dome versus geometrical shapes at Amer Fort, Jaipur


The Juxtaposition between Simple Geometric shapes i.e rectangles and the Abstract shadow/shape  the "Gol Gumbad" or the Round Dome(in English) is shown here.

Wow, that was long and confusing, isn't it? Sometimes, my head just spins while taking such tricky Minimalist Photographs. I try so many different shots and angles and at times I end up erasing all photos of a particular shot/subject and start all over again. This did not happen this time around as finally, I got what I was looking for.

What caught my attention, was the overlapping shadow of the Gumbad on the second rectangle and the way it was curving down to the right. Initially, the shadow flirted for a while with the vertical line of the rectangle but she, probably was not interested and therefore the shadow slipped down further to the right. The key to the shot was, placing right the two rectangles, that's it. Once I did that, I moved a little to the left and the to the right, for adjustment and bang everything was perfect.

Hope you enjoyed the photograph.
