Re: Three holes.

I enjoy abstract images like this one, Dave. I wonder if it is a bit too symmetrical vertically and might look slightly more interesting with the top row removed? Just a thought.

Re: Three holes.

Whoever laid the bricks did not do it straight, there is a slight clockwise rotation that you should be able to correct by rotating the camera in the opposite direction prior to taking the shot. There is also a slight curve to the top of the bottom line of bricks - is your lens showing some pincushioning?

Something like "it represents, how life can be merged together like the lines on the wall but one has to careful of pitfalls and traps in life represented by the holes but sometimes life can take a slight downward path as shown by the slight curvature in the lines"

See easy really

I think I've finally made sense of it Dave, its a pictorial representation of "Circles of Confusion"

(works to as it got me confused for a while! )

Re: Three holes.

Its a photographer's take on a "square peg in a round hole", in this case its a "round hole in a square(ish) brick". It shows you have a unique perspective and can not be lumped into a larger group.
