207 MacLaren

Just west of Elgin on the North side of the street, another February shot on a day with good lighting. I really liked the shadows cast by the balconies. I had a hard time choosing between this photo and one straight on from directly across the street. This angle won out because of the way it highlights how the concrete slabs of the balconies and canopies divide up the facade like a 5x5 grid.

It creates a captivating rhythm, and it just wouldn't look right if the top canopy wasn't there. But that rhythm is also in the sense of how a suburban subdivision's row upon row of near-identical houses has a captivating rhythm from a distance.
