The Rule of Thirds

This photograph was taken in Palo Alto near the California Street CalTrain station, and is somewhat inspired by Rudy Burckhardt's Time Square Dusk. It is a member of my series The Suburbs of Silicon Valley.

This one is much better large, so please press the "L" key and enjoy more detail.
