Wha ...? How Long Have You Been Here?

Honestly, I don't know how many times over the past gazillion years 
I've walked past a parking garage on Ohio Street, 
and even looked at the stairwell. 
But Saturday morning was the first time 
I was open to its austere balance, a beauty in grays 
that reminded me of some of the early 20th century paintings 
by Kasamir Malevich or Theo Van Doesburg.

Artist, Kasimir Malevich

Painting by Theo Van Doesburg,

Blog + photography oppen up our eyes. Great analogies.

At first I was thinking you meant the very Halloweeny door into the wall...

Hello, Belo/Luiz and thank you for dropping by. I don't know how many times I've walked by that entrance without noticing the beautiful balance of that stairwell. Your kind observation is appreciated.

Isn't the reflection a kind of palimpsest? I just chose to ignore the ghost of the other door because it didn't suit my original idea.
