Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Geometry

Patti’s challenge this week says “The world is full of shapes. Circles, squares, ovals, triangles, and even some of your favorites from geometry class like parallelograms. For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, we are focusing on geometry—shapes that are visually interesting and form a pattern or rhythm.”

It’s been over 50 years since I had a geometry class and at first I was intimidated by this challenge. As I looked through my archives I found geometry in architecture, other man made things, nature, and even food. The image above is of a Fresnel lens in a lighthouses. The rest of the images feature random shapes from my archives.

Many thanks to Patti for this week’s Lens Artists photo challenge #141: Geometry

It was my pleasure to host last week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge #140: Change of Scenery. Many thanks to every one who contributed to the challenge. Your beautiful photos took me on a trip across the United States and Canada, and around the world to Africa, India, the U.K., Sweden, and many more amazing places. Thank you!

  1. Hi, Beth. I’m so glad you joined us. Geometry is everywhere! You found it in great places. You’re the first to include food. I love it. Your first two images are striking. I love that Russian church.

    1. Patti, thanks for the challenge. I had fun with it. When I found that tray of sweets in all different shapes I had to include it and then found more food pics to go with it. The church was beautiful and we were able to wander around exploring. They even had a gift shop and two elderly ladies working there were so interesting to talk to. Lots of history there.

  2. Tina, thank you. A few years ago hundreds of starfish started showing up in the tide pools at the beach. I have a bunch of photos and most of the starfish are more orange than red. Not sure why that one is darker. The Titanic experience was very interesting and very moving. It’s a self guided tour with lots of walking involved but it was worth it. It started with the history of ship building in Belfast and had a lot of displays about how it was built.

  3. Beth, you certainly came up with an impressive variety of geometric shots. I would never have thought to include the food photos, but they work! We drove by the Titanic experience when we were in Ireland. I remember how grand and imposing that building is. Next time, we’ll take the tour.

    1. Suzanne, the Titanic Experience was very interesting and worth doing. It is hugeI I had a little fun with the food pics. I came across the tray with the sweets on it when I was looking for something else.
