The story behind the image

I had brought Petra to the airport for an early flight. It was going to be a beautiful spring morning and so I grabbed the backpack with my cameras to shoot some photos I had been planning for a while. Fun stuff. Like this simplistic architecture shot of the eastern building of the Highlight Towers in Munich.

I love the idea that every visible item in this image is straight: the edge of the roof but also the metal structure leading up to the roof. Add to that the restricted color set – just blue, green, and steel gray – and some copy space, and you’ve got the simplistic but beautiful image that I like.
