Eritrean Electricity Authority, Asmara

Eritrean Electricity Authority, AsmaraThis is one of my favourite photos from Asmara.

I like the juxtaposition of the horse-drawn cart, complete with car wheels, passing the Eritrean Electricity Authority building.

As for the building itself, I find the triple column arrangement at the apex of the gable fascinating. I'm not sure if it is the shape of the actual structures or the negative space around them that makes it most interesting for more. It is probably the combination of both.

Then to top it off, the logo of the Eritrean Electricity Authority, a light bulb inside a electricity bolt with a transmission pylon in the background.
