This is just a little something from a carpark of a DIY store. I was impatiently waiting for the parents to buy... whatever, when I wandered around with the point-and-shoot camera that I had at the time. I only got a few shots due to being terrible at photographing in busy places on my own, and this is the best of that small batch. It's not a shot that I am particularly happy with, but it has accrued 50 favourite-list additions over time so it can't be so bad. Hah.

Nice angle. Such a strong, powerful line. Contrast is lovely. I like your square images.

Yeah, I'm fairly obssessed with square images at present, almost to the point that it limits what I can do. Hahah. I'll have to think up a project for myself at some point that deliberately avoids the crop, I think. Anyway, thank-you for the comments and favourite-list additions: it's muchly appreciated.

Well, it's cool to go through "phases" like that--keeps the photography fresh and creative. I've just recently done a few square crops. I not used to looking through the viewfinder that way, so it's fun. I think I'll try more. So you've inspired me. :)

It's what I did after I took the photo. I probably looked silly, bounding around a car park. But hey!

very cool and effective. To me it's about decisions and how often we need an arrow to point us in the right direction... but hey that's just me, 'to each his own'! good angle.

Fabulous perspective and flow. It's simplistic and clean, but still has an urban, worn feeling to it... good job!
