Lets get back to Simple Geometry today. 

We all love geometry, don't we? As soon as I spotted these lines created by the Sun, my eyes opened as wide as they could. And for a few minutes I kept admiring their beauty. I was thanking my stars for what I had stumbled upon, but there was a problem. Shooting only the lines was a shot too simple and mundane. So, I shifted my eyes left, where there was a big window.

To add a bit of spice to the shot, I thought it would be a great idea to carve out a square from the window and show its interaction with the lines. Therefore, I titled this Minimalist Shot as Lines Vs Square.

I took multiple shots and it took me a while to bring the two visible sides of the square to approximately equal lengths . Later, I adjusted the levels in a photo editing software to make the shadows appear darker.

Hope you enjoyed the shot. Wish you all a great day/evening.
