Lots of grid-oriented shots today per the @dailyshoot challenge, but I settled on this one for today's 365, despite its flaw. Something about the contrast between the rigid framework and leafy plant drawing the eye up towards that grid coupled with the varying degrees of shadows is inviting.

Grids provide a border, which can be quite limiting for the innovative - stepping out of the frame is much more comfortable for the creative side...On the other hand, the grid's framework provides an important foundational structure - even a starting point for those who like to 'color outside the lines'. So, it would seem we need grids to allow for both the structure and the innovation - an interesting argument for including extremes! 6th Ave N & 8th St, Naples, FL
