Dry Garden Walkway
Generally speaking, symmetry makes for boring compositions (but there are definite exceptions).
In this photo, the bottom of the frame is symmetrical, but the hard, right angle at top of the frame makes this image interesting. The geometry of this image obvious, but you subconsciously find certain interplays of shapes pleasing or displeasing in almost every image you see, in the same way that certain sounds work together or don't work together in music.
This is at Tenjuan Temple in Kyoto.
