My friends were sitting at Indian Coffee house at Jawahar Kala Kendra and I was supposed to join them for a cup of coffee and some afternoon snacks. It was about 4 pm. While I was on my way I found this fantastic play of light and shadows on my right. I took about 15-20 shots and by the time I joined my friends my cup of coffee had gone cold. I would never sacrifice my coffee or the green teas that I like for anything but for Minimalist Photography.

Now lets go back to the Minimalist Composition

To frame this, I moved very close to the subject i.e the wall and took this photo from the side so that I had two diagonal lines running from left to right cutting right across the lines in repetition. The lines created by the shadows are eight in number total and I added to two diagonal lines to it i.e 8+2=10 and therefore I titled the post "Ten Lines".

Just like us friends, had at nice discussion over coffee that afternoon, these Ten lines too had something to argue about.
