Angles, Repetition


Alignment with the left edge of Scotia Tower along with the building in the foreground offers a rather simple structure of the picture overall; aligning the glass portion of the building in front with the top of Scotia Tower offers some sense of continuity but keeping the top of the building in the foreground misaligned offers some separation of the foreground from the background; the downward alignment of the lines of Scotia Tower juxtapose the upward alignment of the building in front. The flat, reflectionless image of Scotia Tower contrasts with the reflectiveness of the lower building in the foreground. The buildings in the reflection also have contrasting lines providing a sense of recursion or infinite repetition. The red of the tower contrasts nicely with the blue of the sky.
