Symmetry in Street Photography

There are so many different things to look for when exploring urban areas. Of course, we're always hoping for a decisive moment. But there are satisfying shots even in the quiet moments.

One of the things that I look for is symmetry. Whether it's the pattern of two iron emergency staircases on the outside of a brick building, or a set of steps leading up to a duplex apartment, these images can add texture to your presentation. And if you can subtly disrupt the balance with a closed curtain or For Rent sign, all the better.

You can call it your quiet moment photography.
