Seeking the Shapes

Triangles and Circles were the themes for the Photo Art Journals this month.  I had no trouble finding circles in many different and unexpected places, but triangles seemed to evade me.  So I resorted to creating my own.  I found an instruction video on how to make a paper boat - something I had never done before - and created my own paper boat.  I then floated it in my bird bath and managed to see at least eight triangles in the resulting photograph - as well as circles of light.  I love how challenges such as needing to photograph a specific theme help me grow my abilities in small ways - now I know how to make a paper boat, and all because I had to find triangles to photograph! 

"These paper boats of mine are meant to dance on the ripples of hours, and not reach any destination."
Rabindranath Tagore
