National Theater Statuary, and a mistake in composition
I took this photo too quickly. I poked my cameral through the iron fence and snapped the photo. I violated one of the cardinal rules of photographic composition. I neglected to check the edges and corners before taking my photo.
If I had done so, I would have noticed the modern building and light pole at the left edge. If I had just moved a couple of steps to the left, I could have taken the photo with only the Theater in the background of the front statue, without the distraction of the modern building in the background. Compounding this error, if I had moved to the left I also could have aligned the two statues so they would be closer to one another.
Thank you for being my therapist by reading this as I vent my feelings upon looking at this photo.
This week we are showing photos of the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
