Who isn’t fascinated by symmetry? I know I’m drawn to it. But after a while, clicking symmetrical pictures gets repetitive. When that happened to me, I stopped clicking the ‘same old same old’ pictures because I just didn’t feel anything new when I saw those pictures.
In time, I learned to change the way I see things. I’m back to capturing symmetry, but now I make sure there’s something different, something asymmetrical, about the capture. I personally feel I appreciate the objects of these photographs better because the symmetry doesn’t overpower the object itself.
I clicked this at a cathedral in Madrid standing slightly off-centre below the ceiling. Do you think this gives a different perspective to the scene than if I’d stood right below the centre?
