The ladies head peeking over is the best part of this photo especially since it wasn't planned. Great timing Chida.
This really is quite something, once you look at it closely, you see the dynamics of this photo.
Wonderful job Tomoyasu! Just Wonderful. The lady's hat making her head appear in a perfect circle was essential. Her place on the staircase, perfect. I love the lines too, everything is just right.
A big thank you for your service to the World informing and educating us for generations to come. You are the best of the best

Tomoyasu Chida: A woman animates a photo of polka dots in architecture.
Chida's photographs are neo-classical and modernist. These are graphical representations taken from the nature of people and large structures found in the urban area.
Photographed using a wide-angle lens, the images are balanced, asymmetrical compositions, and often are abstract — a difficult accomplishment for any photographer.
1 photo from the gallery is exceptional: There is an asymmetrically composed nightime photograph of sacred Mt. Fuji; 'Mmidnight Blue' Photo by Tomoyasu Chida — http://on.natgeo.com/1b7JcOD
Lines, patterns, and Black/White execution ! And, does the woman add to the photo ? Yes.
It's this, little something element, that takes the photo to a higher level. Great job !!
