symmetry loves company.


I think I’ll call this style: off unsymmetrical symmetry, or how about, symmetrically unsymmetrical, or symmetrical offset. Honestly, I have no idea what to call it. -- Regardless, it’s kinda symmetrical but it’s not. So really it’s not symmetrical, so then... Crap, forget it, I give up.


So if you’re a fan of symmetry or not, then you will like this shot, or not. Crap, I did it again...


This is a room from Castillo de San Cristóbal in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. It’s a great place with a lot of cool areas to explore. This one in particular really caught my eye. It was something about the symmetry or the lack of symmetry. Crap, there I go again...
