The Shape of Things

One of the best things about being told to go out, get behind a camera and LOOK for shapes? All the sharp points and curves and slopes you've walked by a million times before and never noticed come into brilliant focus.

The square benches at the park.

The gentle triangular curve of the rings.

The sloping, steep bowl at the skate park down the street.

The leaf imprint in the sidewalk that you've walked over again and again but never saw. Till today
.
For more shapes, head on over to I Should Be Folding Laundry.

Isn't it funny how much more observant we are if we are trying to capture something?!
Love the photos at the park. Great idea!

Great pictures. So, the new camera is working out for you then?

Heather D said...

Andrea, I'm figuring it out. But I'm leaning heavily on Picasa to edit.
Dear Nikon, please send me an SLR to replace my crappy Canon point & shoot.

Love the leaf...it looked at first like a tree...and your perspective to go with it was great too.
