Composition: Square Format

Challenge #30 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
Many photographers started in medium format with a camera that shot 6x6 cm negatives. This square format could be cropped vertically or horizontally, depending on requirements. However, many photographers realized that the square format created a unique challenge for composition as it broke the mold - so to speak - of the standard image ratio. For this challenge, submit an image that works well in a square format.
