WordPress Photo Challenge: Geometry

This week, the WordPress Photo Challenge is Geometry – looking at lines and rhythm in daily life.  I have taken examples from architecture from around the world.

One of the examples I love of lines and rhythm comes from Antoni Gaudi – a modernist architect who used lines and rhythm to dramatic effect.  I especially love his work at the Casa Battlo in Barcelona.

 

From Prague – the lines on the rooftop from the bell tower at St Vitus Cathedral

St Vitus Cathedral

The world famous Eiffel Tower – a geometric masterpiece.

Paris landmarks

The Sydney Opera House – an example of symmetry and geometry.

And completing the series, the lines of old and new merging in reflection.  Parliament Hill, Ottawa.
