Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

When I first read the weekly challenge, I thought phhhhhhhhhfttttttt!

Math, yeah right, like I am going to attempt that.

But then! I read the words patterns and rhythms: shapes, art, and subjects. And I thought, “Okay, maybe….I overreacted.”

No need to break out the calculator embarrassing myself with figures and numbers.

What I can do is take you downtown. To one of my favorite places….Fort Worth, Texas.

There are some interesting shapes for sure………

The Convention Center is a great shape. This gal knows how to work some curves. Heh.

Then, you have unique.

A blend of stature, revere, and holy beauty. I didn’t catch the cross reflections in the glass building (far left side) until I uploaded this image. It is magnificent.

In steep tradition, Fort Worth uses bricks to pave the street known as Main. It gives such an antique feel to the surroundings. Reminds me of history, the covered-wagon kind. Standing still on the brick, I can almost hear the clop of hooves…..

Another beautiful blend of old and new with reflection. Ah, poignant!

And here, in Sundance Square, we can measure our moments with a little style.

After that, we can admire the natural glow of sun-spheres on our lovely Texas State Flag.

And this? This is the view at the end of Main alllll the way down to the charming Fort Worth courthouse.

So there you have it, not just a mishmash of numbers, but a heartbeat of where the East ends and the West begins.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

The following images were taken in downtown Chicago, IL. I hopped a flight Saturday morning and spent a little over 24hours there (most of it at the airport) and more on that later.

It was a “working” trip, not a personal one. I was usually trailing the group stopping to quickly snap away. I love downtowns….any downtowns. I think it’s from growing up in the country. We didn’t have tall buildings. We didn’t have sidewalks, or trains. I didn’t see things like this very often. And even now, living in a big city between Dallas and Fort Worth. I pass downtown every day and I am still amazed.

I hope to post more about my quick trip soon.

Enjoy the day.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

I took this weeks wordpress photo challenge to nearby downtown Fort Worth.

They have some lovely windows.

The first windows that caught my eye were at the prestigious, and elegant Bass Hall.

The Angels are stunning. I love how the sun reflects off their horns.

This is the same trip as the movie theater and the cupcake haven (see previous two posts).

I think I mentioned we had a lot of fun that day.

Probably, mostly me…… camera in hand.

We caught the horse and carriage ride going by Bass Hall. The most adorable little red-haired girl rode in the front. I just love the look of glee on her face. And they passed by the windows, so I’m totally counting it.

I was clicking away with my DSLR camera, until the battery died. What a bummer!

I usually have an extra battery with me, but not this day. We had gone to the movies and I used my purse to carry my camera. I didn’t bring my camera bag at all.

No worries, I whipped out my iPhone 4S, and kept going. I was on a mission to capture me some windows.

Really, and truly? It did an excellent job.


So good in fact? I have to wonder…..


Can you tell which ones?


If I didn’t know, I might not be able to tell. But trust me, there are a few mixed in.

Regardless of which camera I used, it was an extraordinary day of windows.
