Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

November 4, 2012

I recently started following The Daily Post at and I thought I’d give this week’s photo challenge a try: “Share a photo that means GEOMETRY to you.” Luckily, for me, beginners are invited. It gets better: “Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.” What a friendly challenge for an Amiable Amiable person like myself. Deal me in!

But, indecisive person that I am – or consummate rule breaker – it was impossible to pick just one photo. Plus, it was fun! I got to revisit adventures from the past year in the process, pausing to recall Big Happy Memories as I looked at my photos.

If you want to see the degree to which I’m a photography beginner, check out the work of the challenge’s guest host, Quintin Lake of Quintin Lake Architectural Photography.

      Really?! Thank you, Arindam! I wasn’t sure I was “getting it.” Thank you, too, for visiting and commenting. I’m looking forward to following your blog.

    Did you win?

      It depends. When someone says “She’s a real winner,” is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    I find the symmetry and geometry in nature esp flowers astonishing.

    Brilliant selection of photos AA! I’m glad you’re taking part in the photo challenge – I started doing them a couple of months ago and find its lots of fun to challenge my artistic half.

      Thank you, Rosie! It is a lot of fun – a little something different to do from the usual blogging. I like the artistic “angle” too.

    I swear to God, these images are STUNNING! I’m not a photographer, but anyone with a hoot of sense could see what you have going on here. Remarkable! ANd thanks SO much for visiting my blog. Can’t wait to follow you!!!

      With a stellar comment like that, I wish I’d been introduced to you years ago, Kathy! 😉 Thank you very much for the kind words and for visiting. I would be humbled and flattered to have you as a follower – grazie mille!

    Very good, AA, I particularly like the third down from the top. (That was a bit overclarified, I think, as I don’t see how there’d be a third up from the top…!)

    I find thinking geometrically re-photography very difficult. Can do it artwise, but I’m so tapped in to the curves of nature that… you did well but I doubt I’d be able to!

      Oh, I know you’d do very well, Val! Hope you’re doing well; looking forward to your blog being up and running when the time is right. I bet you’re creating some wonderful artwork in the meantime.

    Math is everywhere … and, on your blog, it’s never looked lovelier.

    • November 6, 2012 12:19 AM

      You are too kind, Judy! Honestly, math was my worst subject and I still count on my fingers (and toes). Receiving a nice comment about something I’ve done related to math just doesn’t add up.

    Isn’t the National Cathedral amazing? Intricate detail all over the place.

    I looked at that other website, AA, and I think your pictures are just as good. I really do.

      Yes, it is, Charles. We did a “Behind the Scenes” tour, and that was just as amazing. The price for the tour, too: $15 each (just slightly more than the “general admission”). That was the most amazing part. Wait, nope. Actually, the parking charge, $16, was truly amazing. All in all, $46 to visit a church. I hope the churches are cheaper when we finally get to Italy!

      Thanks for the extremely nice comment about the photos.

    An exciting series of amazing shapes and forms. I think beginner or professional it’s how we see and appreciate things that matter just like in your photos. It shows an eye that sees things most people don’t. Great job.

      You are too kind, island traveler. Thank you very much for visiting and such a nice comment.

    Very geometric photos, indeed! I love the light fixture on the ferry.
