off-balan ce

I love the backs of buildings. All the attention is given to the front, of course. The public face. But in the back, where nobody is supposed to be, where nobody is supposed to look–that’s where you see the most honest and intriguing aspect of the building and the people who inhabit it.

I’ve walked by this door dozens of times and always found it oddly attractive. I’m drawn to its lack of symmetry. Everything is just a bit off-center, a bit out of true. For some reason, that makes it beautiful to me.
