Geometry: This challenge is about the shapes and rhythms that make up the geometry of our world.
Here’s my shot looking through the porches of the change huts at a beach in the beautiful town Forte Dei Marmi on the Italian Riviera. End of season! Nobody does geometric on beaches better than the Italians.
Consider this quote from Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004), a French photographer, painter and draughtsman, generally considered to be the father of modern photojournalism.
“For me photography is to place one’s head, heart and eye along the same line of sight. It is a way of life. This attitude requires concentration, sensitivity, a discipline of mind and a sense of geometry.”

How do you see geometry in the world around you? Got a photo? I would love to see it!
Great shot, Patricia – there´s so much to love about it!
Thanks, Marianne. I found the lines and impeccable uniformity of all the beach setups in that part of Italy simply amazing. Obviously the time it takes to achieve that kind of perfection each day was valued and that’s a rarity in most parts of the world.

Wonderful example of geometry.
Thanks so much! The subject matter was impossible to resist and I have many more. The Italian beaches in that part of the world are set up with more artistry than I could ever have imagined.
Awesome blog. I came over from Bette Lee’s blog. I am so happy she had the post of you. I am now following you and will be very interested to see what you are up to. Have a great weekend.
Hi Sherry! I’m glad Bette sent you over and I’m going to pop over to your place right now in order to get to know you!
