Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 171

Straight lines, right angles…

Welcome to the 171st round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Thank you for your patience! As always, I really enjoyed reading your posts and I have to say that there were a couple of posts that really surprised me with the novel, creative way, in which you approached the theme of Rectangle. Well done!! Thank you also for the excellent effort that you put in these posts! It shows in the quality and level of photography and prose and poetry that you produce.

Please enjoy each other’s posts and give some props to your fellow blogosphere community members!

Here are some more rectangles…

Colorful, yet foggy!

This scene is at the Herring Era Museum in Siglufjörður, Iceland. The town os Siglufjörður is a great place to visit; when you visit, you may notice that the two served as a backdrop for a significant number of locations of the Icelandic mystery series titled Trapped in English.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rectangles

Rectangles everywhere!

Welcome to week 171 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

The inspiration for this week’s theme comes from my starting to organize a bit of my travel photography. While doing this, I came across an image from 2008 during one of my visits to the Netherlands. As there is quite a bit of geometry at work, I thought that Rectangles might be an interesting theme, as they are everywhere and can be captured in many ways. You can get them straight on, or at angle that warps the perspective… Feel free to let your creativity guide your rectangular interpretation!

Above all, have some fun and share your vision!

Here’s that capture with lots of rectangles…

Institute of Sound+Vision

This image is from inside the Netherlands Institute of Sound+Vision (Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid); the view downward caught my eye, and luckily I still had my camera in outdoor settings (it was a bright February day), so that the exposure caused the moving figure to blur. It made for a nice serendipitous effect!

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

Don’t be a square! Go capture some rectangles and have a blast!
