Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #59 – Angles

Ann-Christine hosts this week’s photo challenge.

Creativity arises from our ability to see things from many different angles.  — Keri Smith

In the Great Hall of the Library of Congress, there are two bronze statues holding aloft not the torch of knowledge but the light bulb of illumination. This building was one of the first in Washington to be constructed with electrical wiring.

Captured the statue from different angles:

See the State Capital Building from different angles:

The image below was captured from the angle of the Department of Justice Building:

Angles was used in Moorish architecture. Notice the angles of the windows leading up to the dome in Alhambra Palace, Granada, Spain.

The engineering challenge was to put a round dome on top of a square structure. Indenting the circle, creating an eight-pointed star, was the answer.

Ann-Christine uses her fabulous photos of the sand sculpture from the Denmark exhibition and a sculpture from Stykkishólmur, Iceland to show us how we can get different views and cool shots of a subject. Join us and share your photos.

  1. What brilliance to use the eight-pointed star or octagon out of a circle to fit on a square. I did a bit of research out of my own curiosity and found this. “Occasionally, the octagon was viewed as a symbol for infinity. It was suggested that the octagon is a circle attempting to become a square… It is a simple shape made by overlapping two squares.” Interesting!

  3. The amount of detail in the Alhambra Palace is amazing. I don’t think any modern buildings pay this attention to detail.
