Symmetry is what we see at a glance.  – Blaise Pascal

Focus:  Texture/Pattern

I wandered around Washington Park today, completely uninspired by anything;  January blahs for sure.  As often happens when I’m bored, I found myself focusing on the details, rather than my environment itself.  Beauty really can be found in the most mundane objects.  The subject of this photo is simply a manhole cover.  An item we see all the time, but rarely take the time to notice.  Looking at the pattern in post-processing, I kept wondering why there was a slight interruption in the symmetry right around the 7:00 mark in the center…. did you notice that?
