Pavement Patterns

I was walking down the street and noticed the broken up asphalt of the pavement. It was so unusual — there had to be an image there!

So I pulled out my new cardboard viewfinder and started looking. Showing broken asphalt only was nice and abstract, but too boring. Adding the curb in the upper-left corner was better, but not well balanced. Finally I went for a vertical composition that shows four different pavement textures. I quite like the strong lines leading up and to the right, as well as the alternating strength of the patterns: strong, weak, strong, weak.
