Focal Length:28mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Can you guess what stopped me and made me pull out the camera here?  It was that window full of riotous shapes and color set inside that plain white wall with highly regimented lines and angles.

This building is not much wider in its entirety than what is shown here.  It looks like it was built to fill in the space between substantial brick buildings on its north and south flanks, perhaps it closed up what had been an alley or carriage way.

For the photo geeks:  This is the perfect scene on which to practice your “Sunny 16” rule.  It still works, even with today’s digital marvels.  Use it and you will save precious electrons!

    Thanks for your wonderful photographs!
