I took the photo below during one of my walks in Brooklyn, when I lived in NYC in the 1980s and 90s. It was somewhere near the Verrazano Bridge that connects Brooklyn to Staten Island.

I like the gentle curve of the park benches as well as the sawtooth shadows of the slats on the bench supports.  What really makes this picture though, is the opposite curve of the double yellow line at the top of the frame.
