Little Steps

Minimalism as Simple Geometry 

This was shot at Diggi Palace - Jaipur during the annual "Literature Festival". I bypassed all the areas where there were people and headed straight to the backyard. I was really very lucky to have spotted this wonderful arrangement of ladders. The photo is all about "Lines" i.e. simple geometry here. The special blue wall and the light coming from the big open gate from the left, enhanced the visual composition beautifully. I could have taken this shot from the front, but to add a bit of perspective to the image, I took it a little from the side. At the same time, I also made use of the diagonal line coming in from the left, and making it end towards the bottom right of the frame. This, along with the slight off center position, makes the photo look very different than normal.
