Weekly Photo Challenge: GEOMETRY

This week’s photo challenge is guest hosted by Quintin Lake of Quintin Lake Architectural Photography. Click on the link  for more about this week’s theme and his photography tips!

Geometry: This challenge is about the shapes and rhythms that make up the geometry of our world.

Here’s my shot looking through the porches of the change huts at a beach in the beautiful town Forte Dei Marmi on the Italian Riviera. End of season! Nobody does geometric on beaches better than the Italians.

Forte Dei Marmi-PSandsPhotos

Consider this quote from Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004), a French photographer, painter and draughtsman, generally considered to be the father of modern photojournalism.

“For me photography is to place one’s head, heart and eye along the same line of sight. It is a way of life. This attitude requires concentration, sensitivity, a discipline of mind and a sense of geometry.”

How do you see geometry in the world around you? Got a photo? I would love to see it!

Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada when she isn't somewhere else, particularly the south of France. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website www.patriciasandsauthor.com She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"

    1. Thanks, Marianne. I found the lines and impeccable uniformity of all the beach setups in that part of Italy simply amazing. Obviously the time it takes to achieve that kind of perfection each day was valued and that’s a rarity in most parts of the world.

    1. Thanks so much! The subject matter was impossible to resist and I have many more. The Italian beaches in that part of the world are set up with more artistry than I could ever have imagined.

  1. Awesome blog. I came over from Bette Lee’s blog. I am so happy she had the post of you. I am now following you and will be very interested to see what you are up to. Have a great weekend.

It's always good to hear to from you!
