Urban geometry…

IMG_1381-1-2

 

Followers of this blog know I have a soft spot for natural beauty–wildlife, landscapes, the cosmos… but as a photographer, beauty often materializes in unexpected ways. Urban landscapes and architecture, for example, are often quite striking, as this composition demonstrates. Look at it for several moments and it becomes almost Escher-esque, with jutting and retreating facades simultaneously juxtaposed one upon another. Geometry of this sort resonates with us because while we are drawn to the logic and flow of lines and forms, we are also aware of the infinite possibilities within such patterns. Where does one line end and another begin? How are they connected? Where do they lead? Just a little Euclidean food for thought, a bit of musing, on a cold winter’s night… Hope you enjoy….

PS: To my current subscribers: Very soon, I will plan to change the site name of this WordPress blog to match my newly launched business name Deb Scally Photography. When that takes place, subscribers to 1107photography will be automatically redirected to the new URL name, which is already apparent in the blog header above. When that happens, don’t worry… it’s still me, and nothing else about the blog’s content or direction will change. This is, and always will be, a creative outlet for my personal thoughts and philosophy regarding photography. As always, thanks for your support, comments, and interest in the blog!

Tower of light…

 

Time to change pace… I’ve been posting images taken fairly close to home these days, but today I felt like something a little different. This was taken a couple of years ago, during my first visit to the City of Light. What a magnificent experience…I was completely taken with the sounds, light, and romantic atmosphere of this city. Tres magnifique! This shot was taken just an hour or so before we embarked on the experience every tourist must take part in when visiting Paris… yes, the long, arduous trek to the top of Tour Eiffel. In what seemed like days later, crammed elbow to elbow with several thousand fellow brethren, my family and I emerged to view what has got to be one of the most fabulous urbanscapes in existence.

 

Moments later, we traversed the elevator to the second tier, where we were rewarded, once again, with what has to be the pinnacle of the Parisienne experience…lights in every direction, sparkling like a million diamonds, at the top of the world. Hope you enjoy…
