Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

With all the photos I have been taking over the last few weeks – city photos – how could i resist this week’s Photo Challenge: Geometry.

Yes, I’ve taken the challenge at face value, and considered – for the most part, geometry as lines and angles and clean spare shapes (although within one shape are many others), but for the most part, I love the contrast of shapes against shapes or sky with tis cloud shapes (where there are clouds) and tree shapes (where there are trees).

Most of these city shots are taken early in the morning on the way to my teaching gig.

Building’s whose shapes intrigued me because of their stark lines against sky:

the Alexander Library building in Perth and a residential/commercial block on Murray Street against cloud:


a building on William Street just as sunlight hits the world:

The material of this is so reflective it darkens the sky in contrast – Heath Ledger Theatre in Perth:

This building – commercial and residential on Barrack/Hay Street is so stark – from this angle:

On Murray Street – a conglomeration of squares and lines:

From this angle, all the skyscrapers are crammed into a small space: lines and blocks against the sky clouded with whisps:

stark geometries


West Perth – very stark – taken in early evening:


from the lower end of Barrack Street – a medley of different geometrical shapes:

older geometries – the old boys’ school in the Plaza, Northbridge:


Matilda Bay – the 1s the distant geometrical shapes of the city:

Natural geometries – which I much prefer: a flower and a leaf:


the geometry of trees: the first is in Hyde Park, the 2nd a flame tree around the corner from me


plane trees in winter, the first with rain.  The geometry is not as stark as in city buildings, but there all the same


the geometry of telephone poles against sunset felt like a good way to close:


I think I’ve over done it 🙂  If you got through them all, well done and thank you 🙂
