Washington Square Arch / New York, New York
Awhile back I was in Washington Square Park in the heart of Greenwich Village shooting some pictures of the Arch, a towering 77 foot high marble monument erected in 1892. As happens on occasion, it wasn't until I got home and was sorting through the shots that I noticed just how perfectly aligned this young woman was with the base stones. It was if she was playing an unconscious game of "Simon says" with the inanimate stone giant. And who says we are not influenced, knowingly or not, by the environment that surrounds us.

Wow. I see what you mean by her perfect alignment. Nice negative space -- clean lines and a cool composition idea.
