Room for squares

Room for squares

Vienna. Austria

My entry to the Transglobal Thursday Fun-Challenge "Be square!". A very literal interpretation of the theme. The title is of course a paraphrase of tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley's great album "NO room for squares" (follow the link to see the great album jacket). I would have liked to do someting more along the "hip-square" vector, which is (or at least was) a very prominent topic in the jazz community. But unfortunately - not enought time...

other sizes: small medium large

If making a circle from the square is a mathematic challenge, making of them trapezoids what a photographic challenge! The flower add a nice soft touch.

Great composition.

Red flowers against urban tristesse. Nice shot. Agree with you: 'hip' to be square would have been good, or even a square dance shot. But where to find in the lack of time.
