      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

Word of the week Photo Challenge: Geometry

Posted by joeabbott on March 24, 2013

WP_20130321_001The Photo Challenge word of the week is Geometry and it got a big turn-out from the folks in the Xbox group.

I thought I’d certainly find a lot of chances to take a picture of something “geometric” this week but, as usual, I got to the end of the week and didn’t really have anything to show for it. A bit disappointing.

I was ready to find a book on geometry and take a picture of that, but it felt a bit goofy and I thought there’d be a lot of chances to take pictures of neat things: lines converging, concentric circles, a radial spray of mist … anything that followed a structured path.

And yet I had nothing.

Then on the ride home from work, I snapped a few close-up pictures of my book bag and I liked how it turned out: both a bit out of focus and the ordered dots. I snapped a few more, but kept coming back to the original photo with its hazy focus and slight surface curvature. In the end, submitted that one.

Here are the other pictures I snapped:
