This is down in Gowanus, by Hoyt and Douglass. I spent a few hours walking around there today, checking out some abandoned buildings and construction yards, and generally enjoying the Spring weather.

Hey, that's my 'hood! I walk down that street almost every single day.
I agree with Sonia...the shadow of the bird really kills me.

Each element in this photo is perfectly spaced to create an infinite circular rhythm for the eye. The directional motion of everything propels the eyes in a mesmerizing clockwise spin. The residual motion from the firebox impact to the pigeon's shadow, the pigeon itself, the direction of the boy running, the one way sign arrow, and the perfect split between light/dark sides of the building bring you back to the firebox and more directional arrows on the street. The inside of the circle is near perfect geometry: two quarters and half the pie. Wonderful.
