Perfect Circle In A Perfect Square
Austin, Texas

Part of the balance that I travel back and forth on is between asymmetrical freedom and fascist symmetry. The interior dome in this image promotes the latter, where I zoomed in very closely and made a very precise crop--making sure that each corner was exactly the same. Additionally, when I shot this image I got on the floor and made sure that my camera was in the exact center by aligning it with the circle inlaid in the marble surface. Absolute symmetry can become an absolute obsession.
