The idea of capturing a series of shots with at least one triangle in each came to me as I sipped my morning coffee from my favorite easy chair and peered out my living room window at the number of triangles atop my neighbor’s house. I loved how the morning light accentuated each triangle and created a shadow of that shape, and how my mind’s eye finished incomplete lines of triangles. I captured this shot through my living room window.

    Cool shot! I like the idea. Make me think of the woman on the morning TV show last week who captures smiles. It's amazing how many smiley faces you can find just by looking around you!

    I love it!! They say that the use of triangles in composition is very appealing and here you put in a bunch of them. They are right!
