Urban Shape #11

I took this shot at Bandung Zoo. I purposely came here to practice my sense of visual design, especially about the curve line. After Urban Shape #10, I specifically search for something curvy and try to make a good picture out of that. Then I found this circle paving near the entrance gate. It's not the best urban curve shape, but the rectangular elements of the paving that build the curve make an interesting combination. A curve built from rectangle. Isn't that magic ?

So I have the stage set, now I need the actor. Visitors pass by in random direction, doesn't inline with the curve. After waiting a few minutes, the crowd starts to ceased, then a little child show up near the turn of circle paving, with a women and another child on the background. Actually I prefer the background to be clean, leaving the child as a solo actor. But mother nature doesn't like that. I waited several more minutes wishing for another luck, nothing comes up. This is the best I could get from this spot.
