Not a Tsunami

We are so afraid of failure that we tend to be over-cautious in life. Even small hurdles start looking very big to us and with each such hurdle we tend to lose some self-confidence. The wall below has been shot from such an angle from where it appears to be forming a strong sea wave. The message here is that we need to take setbacks in our stride and not interpret them as the big destructive Tsunami waves and just move on. Life is a struggle isn't it, and would it be fun if it was easy?

Back to the composition

The photo is Minimalism as Less Elements. The primary subject being the metal pipe and its shadow. Shot is taken from the right hand-side, rather than straight from the front to make the composition interesting and add the wavy depth. The highlights have been enhanced further during editing. Yes, it is bright and a hint over exposed, I did try a darker version but later reverted to this.
