Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

13-angular

I strongly prefer circles rather than angles, but if angles it must be, here they are. In response to WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular.

  1. That was very quick off the mark! I like this shot, good framing with the buildings and the lights remind me of Beograd. Hope you’re having a good day… πŸ™‚

    1. I’m very competitive and like being the first… It’s pathetic that this applies to blogging rather than to my work though. I’m always thinking I’m blogging too much and working too little. Re the affinity with Beograd, yes, I think so too, I haven’t been to Belgrade but from what I’ve seen in your pictures, this is a typical set up of old town streets in Eastern Europe. Picturesque but somewhat grungy too.

      1. It is easy to get hooked and the sense of community is also a pull….I fell in love with Beograd for so so many reasons, gritty but so full of soul….

        Now, feeling the sense of competition my angular post is now up…

        1. You said all. I’ll just add that gritty city is good for photography. And that I’ve just seen and enjoyed your angular shot! Though you probably didn’t enjoy the hike to the top of the building only to find out the lookout is locked.

          1. Thank you, it was an “angry” shot….I was full of expectation and boy had they locked it down, every conceivable way up had been barred, chained and blocked….. and I love grit

          2. If it makes sense that you can sense it? Heh, I’m loving wordplay πŸ™‚ And yes, it does makes sense. My senses are a bit dulled tonight though, so I think I’ll stop hitting the keyboard and will hit the bed. Shockingly early.

        1. Life goes on — but so does the blogging! πŸ˜€ Which reminds me of “I can’t go on. I must go on.” Beckett. I’m only appreciating him since I grew old and lazy to remember the plot. With Beckett, of course, there’s not much plot to follow.

    1. Haha, no, it wasn’t too painful, though I’m a cat and circle person really. And my reward is your visit, which I’m always looking forward to on Fridays πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your weekend!

  2. My brother-in-law attended a school where, for some reason, they were opposed to right angles. They created the wrong energy for learning or something. So none of the rooms contained true right angles as far as possible.

    1. Hm, this is an interesting theory. I have heard some similar ideas about negative energy zones and advice of the kind that you shouldn’t be near cacti because they’re negative. But I don’t act on this and cacti is actually about the only flower (well, it’s probably not even flower) that I like. I’m not sure I can imagine a room without right angles. Unless it’s a hut of course, which was probably not the case here.

      1. We all agreed it was weird. He went to that school because it had a robust programme of support for dyslexia. All the oblique and acute angles and the things like eurythmy were just “bonuses”.

        1. I see! Now it probably makes more sense to know that the school was devoted to special needs students. Perhaps they believed that a nonstandard environment might help too. And of course, whatever helps is good… πŸ˜‰

          1. Well it was a Steiner School so not specifically for students with particular learning needs but I imagine part of their ethos was that some sort of holistic, environmental, “organic” approach was a means of support. It didn’t hold up to scrutiny. Their exam grade success was not stellar.

          2. Oh yes, those holistic people. Well, I found out that these sort of zen things don’t work for me too well, but it’s excellent when they do for someone. The exam grade results you mention don’t particularly support the idea that it works though…

    1. Exactly, the weird lamp on the wire was what caught my attention in the first place, actually. Thanks for noticing my artistic intention, haha πŸ˜‰ Glad to see you around; and have a great weekend!

    1. I know! I’ve been getting so many lovely and encouraging comments recently… *happy sigh* Including yours!! ❀ I'm glad that you like, I admit I was quite pleased with the result myself this time — which is rarely the case!
