Pie in the Sky: Redux
Last week, I introduced my latest
obsession series – these triangles of architecture which have seized my imagination of late. “Seizing” is an accurate assessment of what has happened to my creativity controls – I can’t seem to shoot anything but these pieces of geometric pie. I have been taken over, possessed – I see in triangles. What is it about these wedges that I find so appealing?
There is, of course, the geometry – a sharp triangle, cleaving the sky, slicing the negative space. Then there is the abstract nature of the framing – a celebration of strong shapes and lines. There is the composition – strongly balanced – the left and right sides, mirror images. There is boundless variety and an infinite menu of different flavors.
The images point upward – symbolically encouraging growth or movement or accomplishment. To reach for the stars and our dreams. To achieving new heights of imagination.
Today we celebrate “pie”. And the gift of photographic inspiration. To being overtaken.
Tell me : what is your favorite flavor?
