Building relationships

There is a trend toward very simple graphic images in architectural photography that I’ve run across in articles about the best Instagram feeds. Simple graphic images can be very effective but building relationships between contrasting¬†shapes can create a rich image in which the sum is greater than the parts. I spotted this while walking in Madrid. They are part of a complex of government buildings. The variety of geometries first caught my eye. It only helps that the surface treatment of each building is so different.
