Simple Geometry

Maybe it’s because there’s often been chaos in my day (and in my thoughts), but sometimes I really crave the orderly. Symmetry. Simple Geometry.

Architecture is one of the places where I have enjoyed many balanced forms. I’m drawn to the clean, crisp images of geometrically simple buildings like the triangles of the Transamerica Pyramid Center in San Francisco…


or the glass pyramids at the Louvre

and the window in the ceiling of the (Hawaii 5-0) Court building in Honolulu…


and here are a few others…

a variety of geometric possibilities at the Eiffel Tower…


Montreal buildings, reflected in other buildings…

The Biosphere Environment Museum from Montreal’s Expo 67

What geometic shapes appeal to you?

    Very cool, TRS! Beautiful shots!

    I like the buildings reflected in other buildings…also the Biosphere is beautiful…


  12. These are spectacular. I’m partial to circles for some reason. I guess a psychiatrist could make something of that. 🙂
    The Honolulu ceiling and the Biosphere are my faves.

    As a Land Surveyor all shapes attract me….


    • My Dad was a civil engineer – he could see the structural values in everything. He used to take us out on his site evaluations, and it always amazed me what he could see with his eye and his tools!
      Thanks for stopping in! 🙂

    Wow, you’ve got so much going on here. I love it! I love the San Fran Euckidean TransAmerica building, the practical geometry of the Louvre and the symetry of it all too. Best is I’ve been to all these places, lived close to some and have lovely memories when I look at these photos. Nicely done. 🙂
