Middle management

Battery Stoddard, Fort Worden, March 2012

This was an irritating shot to make because every time I accounted for one point lining up I’d see another and have to adjust perspective. Then I had a bout of indecision about depth of focus. After about 20 minutes of this I started to loose interest in the composition so I just took the shot.  My irritation with this experience shot colored the result for several months. It looked more like an exercise in discipline, like playing scales on a guitar, than a creative endeavor. But I like how the geometry both radiates from the sidewalk and truncates the radial shapes at the same time. Which is a good enough visual metaphor for the literal-minded bollixing I often subject myself to when taking pictures.
