Shapes – Circles, Triangles, Squares and Rectangles

Thanks for the feedback about this blog being blank . I ran out of time when I was composing  it and couldn’t erase the blog, only the details.

One of the assignments at a workshop I attended last weekend was to find the basic man-made shapes in the environment around me so I decided to re-visit this assignment and go for a stroll. I found it quite interesting, and somewhat challenging at first when it came to triangles. This is what I found:

Shower Head


Square Tiles


Monet Print



Triangle Under Stairs




Then there were the shapes that were combinations of more than one shape.

Old Intercom


Drum and Mat


Triangles Circles Rectangles


The purpose of this is to open my eyes and find the shapes around me and observe how they fit into the environment, also to think about how I would compose a photo using these shapes.In the last photo someone has thought about this when they designed this candle holder using triangle, rectangle and circle, sometimes repeating the shapes.

  1. Your post did not load. I saw it in my email though. We did a photography project like that in college.

    WP usually saves it in a draft folder on your blog then check and make sure media has been added nice to see you
