To Hire or Not to Hire

Minimalism as Less Elements

Sometimes, when we visit a local tourist spot in the city we think that we know more about that place than even the tourist guide. We overhear him while he is briefing his clients about the place and we try to confirm our knowledge with that. But very soon we realize, that he knows more that us, as this is his profession. This is the shadow of a "Hire a tourist guide" Sign Board, at Jantar Mantar Jaipur.

I have clicked a square being formed by it. But the question remains, to Hire or not to hire a tourist guide? cant we just let go of our ego and learn more about our own city?.

More on the Minimalistic Composition

I placed the "Shadow Square" on the left, leaving a lot negative space in the frame. Minimalism using negative space is the Bread & Butter shot of Minimalism as Less Elements category. Placing the ground on the bottom was a little tricky and I made sure that I only included it to show the contrast in colors. The strong texture of the yellow wall adds an artistic feel to the image.
