GEOMETRY by Tammy
Oops, just realised I hadn’t chosen and posted my five shots. All my shots come from the day out with Eleanor in Kings Park and Subiaco. I could have done more but the weather has been cold and wet, work has been super busy and weekends have been spent fixing up the house.
Since I was seeing lots of shapes in Kings Park, I had thought I’d concentrate on geometry in nature. But in the end, I decided to go with 5 different shapes. Being an engineer, Eleanor has very nicely covered the technical and mathematical aspects of geometry in her post, so I’m just going for shapes.
TRIANGLE – There were lots of these triangular seed pods close to the ground in Kings Park.
SQUARE – With the rain puddling on the road, I noticed this scene a few times before I pulled over to take a shot. It’s at the stop sign down from Eleanor’s house and alerts drivers to the up-coming speed humps, one of Eleanor’s pet hates.
STAR – I’m not really sure what flower this pod belongs to but it’s so distinctly a star.
OCTAGON – Outside a tile shop on Rokeby Road in Subiaco, this unusual roof made lovely shapes against the blue sky, clouds and trees.
CIRCLES – Or spirals. These millipedes were curled up under a leaf in Kings Park. I placed them on top of the leaf to take some pics. Some passers-by were puzzled by what I was doing as I laid on the path photographing these little creatures.
