Searching through my personal gallery of photo's, i wanted to post one for Juan (JFS), my last dedication was to Lisa (Delpeoples) so who's next hmmm....
Juan enjoy's taking photo's of architecture, mostly in the abstract style, or at least of very unique buildings.
Here in San Francisco, this tall sky scraper is nothing unique, but when photographed up close and on a tilt, the final result is one that's highly graphical. Heck, it even hurts the eyes a bit!
I enjoy trying compositions like this, turning a not so interesting subject into something eye popping.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Looks like rolling liners in front of barber shops. Real optical illusion, congratulations for trying.

A nice idea in your image. Image that takes the eye. But the heart never does. Subject interesting and amazing.
Have a nice evening

It's hard to imagine a more abstract image. We scan the picture constantly seeking unsuccessfully a difference. Very nice visual effect. The sharpness and contrast are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

This isn't a photograph at all - it's an optical illusion! Curiously, looking at the thumbnail, the whole picture looks as though it's leaning to the left at the top - the brain plays funny tricks when the eyes see this.
If ever an image could be described as being "graphic", then this is it. Parallel lines which are interrupted only by tiny, hardly perceived, joins in the paler ones not only dominate the picture but are the picture.
Perhaps not quite so obviously appealing as your last beautiful photograph which you dedicated to Lisa, nonetheless this is itself stunning and I like it - I hope Juan (JFS) does too!
P.S. On the subject of observation and optical illusions, I read somewhere that our two eyes together equate to the equivalent of a camera with around 560 megapixels and they can transmit information to the brain at the enormous rate of about 200 megabytes per second. Unfortunately, our poor old brains are only capable of processing a tiny fraction of that (perhaps around 10 megabytes or less per second) and that is why the brain makes assumptions regarding what the eyes actually see. Assumptions based on previous experience, particularly regarding lighting as our brains assume that everything is lit from above - because that is where the sun is - as well as other things we learn as we stagger from the cradle to the grave. Interesting.

Hi my friend!
Lovely dedication! i like it, and you know i'd love it...When I opened the gallery it jumped to me eyes. Today I'm in Varese, close to Como and it's raining (no pictures) but yesterday I was in Lugano and had a superb day...lots of pictures. You'll see them in short.

Very simple, only the tilt lines, but attractive composition. Creative shot. I am so curious what you will find in Warsaw, not much for this kind of shots.
have a nice Sunday

strong visual impact and a funny sensation of movement when you move the picture.It was very well seen, and the result is excellent!

This is more an artwork picture with the a lot graphical lines.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Excellent composition, very well done, TFS.

This image attracts viewers for its strong contrast, shapes and the parallel diagonal lines make fabulous graphic picture as well The illusion of movement can be felt when scrolling up and down, a really hypnotic wavy effect. The strong lighting outlining the profile is attractive element. Good observation, Congrats.
