I call these Surreal Lines as in reality, they do not exist. They are formed by the game of light and shadows, that nature plays and I love capturing it. I was at the "Albert Hall Museum Jaipur" and when I spotted these lines playing Hide and Seek, I zoomed in all the way to capture this intriguing Minimalist Photo. As a thumb-rule make all vertical lines in a composition appear 90 degrees or as close as possible to 90 degrees. Also note that any horizontal lines may or maybe not be 180 degrees.
These rules you would not find anywhere but here. They just make Minimalist Photos appear attractive. I chose to classify this image under Minimalism as Less Elements because there is only one element here which acts as the primary and lone subject i.e the Various Lines.
