when i saw the topic for this week’s photo challenge was geometry i quickly ended up at this photo which was the unfortunate consequence of an inspirationally creative idea colliding with a unfortunate forgetting of a necessary tool to pull off said idea…

every year i have cycled the 109km [67.7295 mile] Argus Cycle tour in Cape Town, South Africa, both the largest individual times race in the world and one of the most beautiful in terms of scenery along the way… and for most of those years i cycled in creative costumes, largely involving the use of pink tights [simply because i had them left over from some children’s drama i once did] and this particular year the pink tights were done and i had to get more creative and so managed to convince a friend of a friend of mine to cycle with me in fish net stockings…

we may have forgotten to put on the required amount of sun tan lotion. in fact we may have forgotten to apply any sun tan lotion at all. not a wise thing to miss when you are about to spend 6 or more hours in the hottest hours of the blazing sun while cycling and so this criss-cross pattern was the result and the geometry stayed with us for a couple of months…

which brings me to my second pic and a much less personally painful one taken on a trip to a youth conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and this geometry-laden pic of a variety of shapes scattered below the walkway of the Petronas Twin Towers… the circles, triangles and squiggles combining and contrasting helping create what almost feels like a musical kind of symmetry to it…
