Triangle leftovers

Here is another photograph of the skyscrapers on Hagenholzstrasse in Zurich Oerlikon that were already  the subject of last weeks post. This is again a simple, minimalistic, geometric composition of cityscape patterns, but yet this photograph is very different from the version of last week. The more I sort and order my cityscape photographs, the clearer I recognize recurring themes and elements. I should really reorganize my photographs! 
The photograph below would for example fit themes such as "urban patterns", "façades" or "triangles". I seem to have a weakness for triangles and "triangle leftovers". Many of my otherwise homogenous cityscape compositions contain a triangular piece of sky or background. I often take different versions of a subject, but in most cases I prefer compositions that include a small piece of background somewhere. In most cases, the triangle leftover is on either of the top corners, but in this case the triangular piece of sky is on the bottom left. In general, I like the interplay between the dominant triangular shapes and the repeating, geometric pattern in the photograph shown here. You can discern several repetitions of triangular shapes all over the photograph. Even though I have not realized when composing the photograph I very much appreciate the tiny arrow pointing into the lower right corner. It is only a small detail, but since I have discovered it, this "exit arrow" makes me smile.

Have a nice week!
