Geometry & Shapes

“Inspiration is needed in geometry, just as much as in poetry.” - Alexander Pushkin

Strong shapes and forms are both easy and hard to capture in a photo.  Easy because such photos are rarely technically difficult:  you usually don’t need the sense of timing that is critical to street photography or the interaction with another person that makes or breaks a portrait.  But they are hard because the subjects are not as obvious to the photographer as, say, a landscape or a person.  With my camera in my hands, I see shapes and forms that otherwise pass me by.  There is something particularly satisfying about creating a strong, compelling image from the mundane.
