Unique Perspective

This is another photo from my most recent trip to Italy. The story goes that we were walking through the streets of Rome and all of a sudden I saw a sweet crack in the wall. Yes, I get fascinated by some of the strangest and most mundane of things sometimes. But, this crack has a story to it. It is a stress crack so it was made from structural shift in the foundation or in the wall of the building and was made over the course of several years, and since this is in Italy and all buildings there are old this is commonplace. I enjoy different perspectives of seemingly ordinary spaces and I love to play with the edges of compositions because that is where the energy of the image is. That is precisely what I did here.
