Perpendicular Perfection

A wonderfully delightful client of mine recently sent me this photo of perpendicular perfection (I'm a sucker for symmetry and balance). I love it. It reminds me of Piet Mondrian's 1943 Broadway Boogie Woogie canvas. Painted while in New York City, the artist's rendering was meant to capture the fervor of city life. In plan, the black grid and yellow color blocks are representative of city cabs navigating Midtown Manhattan. Obviously, the photograph is far more pedestrian but, I'm intrigued how it captures Mondrian's energetic sentiment with curious stamina.
