Geez, I think I have used John Mayer references twice in one year, who would have thought. At the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center found this compelling scene.

ISO 1600 ­ 1/15 @ f/9.0

I was immediately struck by the symmetry of the squares and lack of symmetry in the colors in this scene. Changed lenses to get a wider angle point of view, which the short viewing space in the display are made necessary. Carefully aligned the image into the center of the frame, pretty much knowing ahead of time that this would be a crop to a different aspect ratio than normal. The scene metered a tad on the dark side, so added about 2/3 of a stop to the exposure reading.
