Street photography gets a heck of a lot easier when you stumble on an art & sculpture park in the middle of a stroll through the Chicago suburbs. Shot on Google Pixel 3, black and white filter.
My favorite part of this photo is the empty spaces – I’m all for cool uniformity but I have a soft spot for breaks in the pattern (oh, the psychoanalysis that could flow from that statement).
