Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141: Geometry…at home with shapes

Patti has asked us to find shapes this week. I’m sticking close to home for mine, as all are taken in our house or yard. I always enjoyed geometry; in fact I enjoyed math, because everything was logical. Just call me Spock. 🙂 I enjoyed math until I got to trigonometry, at which time I realized that unless I went into math, I probably wouldn’t have any use for it, even for figuring out the width of a creek from the shadow of a tree.

We’ll start with an edible shape, one cherry tomato from my patio plant, sharing shapes with part of our patio table (not edible.)

A shapely part of an aloe plant.

Cacti are made for geometry!

Some early morning geometry, courtesy of the sun and blinds.

Although there aren’t innumerable leaves here as there were in the Midwest, we still get some.

Thus endeth today’s geometry lesson. There will be no quiz and it’s pass-fail, so happy weekend!

    It’s that table again! 🙂 🙂

  2. Dan Antion says:

    Great photos but no fair showing a fresh tomato.

  3. bushboy says:

    Great shapes 🙂 🙂

    • Thanks very much, Brian. I’d say our house and yard must be in great shape, but I don’t want to start a linguistic conversation today, not that I don’t enjoy them, but that pesky thing called time. 🙂

  4. Sue says:

    Well done, Janet!

    The world is full of shapes. Liked that tomato. Just planted tomato seeds in a large pot – climbing cherry tomatoes.

    Lovely images, Janet. I especially love your first 3 shots. The tomato is a great idea. I love how it contrasts with the other shapes on the table. And the cacti are perfect for the challenge, too. Wonderful!! I’m so glad you added some “geometry” from nature.😀

  7. Amy says:

    I love the cherry tomatoe, beautiful shape! Cacti are made for geometry, perfect. Very clever, Janet!

    • Hi, Amy. I hope you had a good weekend. I thought the tomato had a pleasing shape and cacti are very geometrical. 🙂 It’s always fun to join, but I don’t always have time on the weekends to do so.

  8. Tina Schell says:

    Well Spock, you did a great job on this one! Loved your little tomato and of course your wicked cacti! Never got to trig myself….made me glad I was a language major LOL!

  9. I love your cacti. I am an avid gardener and have a large aloe plant, but it’s nowhere near as pretty as yours: it doesn’t have the red points.

  10. JohnRH says:

    Ha! Outstanding!!

  11. Su Leslie says:

    Aaagh, trigonometry. I think that’s why I failed sixth form maths the first time.

    Love the shapes btw; especially the tomato. Time for breakfast I think.

  12. Leya says:

    Great shapes, love the cacti.

  13. Resa says:

    Besides the fact that the tomato is making me hungry, these are all great shots and examples of at home geometry. Well done!
