Tourinji Temple, Ishigaki City, Okinawa, Japan, 2006

Ishigaki, the southernmost city in Japan, is relative remote and tranquil, with a population of only 46,000. It overflows with lush plantings, such as at this neighborhood Buddhist temple. Using a wideangle lens, I placed the camera virtually on the ground and then tilted the lens slightly upwards in order to make the leaves flow into the beams under the temple roof. The design of my camera made taking this difficult vantage point very easy it offers a flip up viewfinder, which allowed me to make this shot without having to burrow into the ground.

Yes, you have summed up the nature of this image in just three well chosen words, Andrea. The red leaves rise in a rough triangle, which contrasts to the neatly defined triangle created by the decorative temple roof. It is all geometry here.
