  • This photo presents an obvious, quickly recognized symmetry, but what I enjoyed the most were the details found on each side of the dividing line between left and right. At left musicians practice. At right, a waiter prepares. Though different acts - each the same. That only adds interest to the symmetrical aspect of the image.
