Geometrical shapes and angles are literally everywhere. The way the horizon lines up with the sky and how the ocean’s shore angles in towards the beach … as well as every building against the sky … all geometric.

And nature provides some surprising geometry. A flower, each petal set in a round center … and the formation of cactus thorns in neat rows and swirls. Geometry.
I’ve frequently been asked why I include — or, more to the point, why I don’t remove — the power lines in my pictures. Because the wires are the lines that impose an order on the pictures. Moreover, they are part of the landscape. Reality can be jarring, but sometimes jarring is exactly what takes a pictures from ordinary to exceptional.
I struggle with geometry, photographically and historically. Not my strong suit, but I’m always willing to give it a try. This is the clock tower of a mill in Rhode Island. It was built in 1911 and was restored for use as office space.
