Lens-Artists Challenge #59 – Angles
“A little perspective, like a little humor, goes a long way.”
This week we’re looking at angles – both the geometric ones (such as in the light fixture above) and as the perspective from which you see something. Not gonna lie – Ann-Christine threw me for a loop with this one!
“Perseverance and perspective until victory.”
I had to look high and low (literally and figuratively) for images that fit the challenge. Both the light fixture in my opening image and the ceiling in the image above seemed to me to include as many angles as one might ever want. Both were found by the simple act of looking up.
“The challenge of art is always searching for something different; a new perspective.”
On the other hand, I spotted the image above by looking down. I liked the angles in the cross as well as those created by the cracks in the pavement. Much as in life, different perspectives allow us to see things differently – perhaps giving us a better understanding of others’ views of the world.
“Let us pause, change perspective and see things more clearly.”

I’ll close with an image of a golden star – which has both large and small angles set within its circular form. Perhaps the idea of our looking at a situation from every angle would help to make the world a better place. What do you think?
Thanks to Ann-Christine for pushing me to really give some thought to her challenge and its multiple meanings. We’re looking forward to seeing your interpretations as well.
