Symmetry and lines.
This window is actually not on the ground floor. I was on the ground floor. Since I had to shoot up to capture this shot and I did not have a tilt-shift lens to use, the image coming out of the camera has the all vertical lines, including the window, converging/narrowing together at the top of the photograph. Using Adobe Lightroom’s lens correction tool, adjustments were made to the vertical slider to achieve this final result.
While the bricks on this 100 year old+ building catch the eye of most observers, it is the rails to the stairwell inside that capture mine. Perhaps I could have cropped the image to show just 1 brick width surround the window to focus the attention on the interior. Another experiment for another day.
