Photo Essay

Here a Triangle; There a Triangle

Layered Triangles

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. Hours later, within the courtyard of Fort Worth's Museum of Science and History, I got caught up in capturing more triangles. No doubt the beauty of simple geometry can be seen almost everywhere, but seeking and photographing a particular geometric shape can feel like a treasure hunt, as well as further train the eye and lead to eye-catching photos.
