Ancient Rectangles – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rectangles

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic:

As there is quite a bit of geometry at work, I thought that Rectangles might be an interesting theme, as they are everywhere and can be captured in many ways. You can get them straight on, or at angle that warps the perspective… Feel free to let your creativity guide your rectangular interpretation!

Well I was all set to use a photo of some scaffolding, and then I saw this photo, and given I had just published a post entitled ‘Ancient Triangle’, I thought this would be the perfect companion! Plenty of rectangles on view here.

Ancient tunes – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Construction Related

For this weeks B&W challenge Cee asks:

This week the topic is Anything Construction Related.    This topic is quite huge.  See if any of you can come up with something way out of the box.

So my first photo is of an ancient roundhouse at Grimspound on Dartmoor.

The second is of what a completed roundhouse may have looked like.

And finally as far out of the box as my thinking would take me, a photo of the room where my band Kantref recorded our album.  If you try hard enough you can see the notes floating in the air, the music and album are under construction, the photo taken at a moment when the construction workers have downed tools for a cup of tea.
