Urban Juxtaposition #16

I take this shot in response to Weekly Photo Theme "Pattern & Shadow" in Indonesia On The Street Facebook Group. The keyword "pattern" hints something that geometrical in nature, a repeating elements. From all possibilities that come to mind, I arrive at this spot. Again ... Pasupati.

Actually I'm starting to get bored with this kind of scene. Foreground to background connected with leading line. But I see a unique potential here. The curve line of the perimeter of the exit lane converge with the line from the flyover, give a strong geometrical shape. At the same time, those two curve enclose the peaceful Taman Jomblo area, protecting it from the wild and hazardous highway nearby. Great! As usual, I wait few minutes to get passer by on the foreground. This approach is already becomes standard procedure.

At first, I plan to capture this as a blue hour scene, but I think it's better in BW.
