I see why. The interaction between color and geometry is too strong to ignore. Wonderful image. Normally I would be wanting the cars gone, but the colors balance with the trash cans, so they are essential on color alone. The perfect boxy shapes, the ruthless horizontals and verticals, all combine to make this a very satisfying image to look at.

Having become accustomed to your black and whites I am having a hard time with this one. I see the geometry and the color balance but I'm not caught up in it as so many of your others. It's unfair I know to judge one against another but if were to say I like these then I would have to say I don't like this image as much.

What I'm curious about then is what you see in it, beyond what you've stated, what made you stop and say I need to photograph this? S-

Ernst, the colors accent the geometric qualities of this subject quite nicely.
