    Hi Jade O:

With respect to my pepper entry - I ignored the stares, wore a mask, adhered to social distancing, and shamelessly spent some time at the local supermarket arranging vegetables.

    Thank you all for your votes and comments. Each one is appreciated.

I'll post in outtakes the original; hopefully I will have time this evening.

The additional lines on the top left were to add balance to the white and grey on the bottom right. Not sure how many monitors can pick up the pattern in the black panels and the shadows cast on the vent by the garage door but I was drawn to the details and always admired the architect who took the mundane, essentially a warehouse, and elevated it into something that was as artistic as it was functional.

I enjoyed this Challenge quite a bit and would love to see an architectural photography challenge.

    Jade - re Fibonacci I had considered both sunflower heads gone to seed and romanesco cauliflowers... but both well-worn examples and hard to make stand out.

Intrigued as to why you added the grey and white vertical line above the high roof - I can see that the white echoes the lines found elsewhere, was that your thinking?

    I really like the vibrant colours in this photo. What a great choice for the theme. Perfectly taken, and my No.1

    RL Never thought of it but there is something Klee-like but with a very limited palette.

babysitter Thanks. I think the composition makes it work.

aoc It is bold and especially so for such an ordinary use. It is quite attractive in its location.

    Very, Klee, Mondrian or Bolotowsky in feel. I like the abstractness and colors.

    Maike How did you know this one was from me too? : )

ysal I've always liked this building. Quite nice to see some design effort into something as mundane as a public storage building.

dave Thanks!

Old Finn Yes. I immediately thought of architecture and we have a lot of repetition in buildings around Toronto.

SteveBee My thoughts were that cropping to leave just the main square would be cleaner but less interesting. A personal choice though, since I think either would work well.

kerszkavet I thought a lot about the golden ratio. Also considered Fibonacci sequences in nature but much harder for me at least to show photographically.

fc Always like it when you have your image as first in the sorting. Appreciate the early comments.[

    You have some very colourful buildings in your area!! I like the open entry a little better, but this is excellent too.

    So crisp and colorful, it almost doesn't look real until you see the inside of the building. Very nicely done.

    well done... in my favorites.

    Suits to the topic

    Very eye-catching colors and contrast. I wonder about cropping just short of the window and door on the right because they are cut off by the frame and that draws the eye out of the frame.

    A great minimalist picture, with plenty of repeated shapes. It reminded me of the golden ratio diagram.

    An eye catcher to start with, well framed
