Juxtaposition: Geometry Vs Abstract form

Minimalism as Simple Geometry

The Juxtaposition between Simple Geometry i.e rectangles and the Abstract form created by the shadow of 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 photos. 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 was 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.
