Geometric Shapes

There is a national TV network in Canada named CTV. Back in the 1960’s CTV introduced a new logo that incorporated a circle, a square and a triangle to represent the “C”, “T” and “V” respectively. This logo has survived for 50 years and it is still going strong, even though the ownership has changed over the years. I believe that the use of simple geometric shapes is part of the reason for the ongoing success and recognition of the logo.

The following are three sample images that utilize strong geometric shapes and patterns.

Monochrome Arches – Series 2

This second series of monochromes that continues with the theme of arches includes three more religious buildings.

St. Paul’s Cathedral in London continues to be a significant edifice in the city. This cathedral, the masterpiece of Britain’s most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren, has operated for over 300 years. This building survived the London Blitz of 1940-41, and good town planning has kept the cathedral and its magnificent dome as a visible landmark during the reconstruction of the surrounding neighbourhood.

Fountains Abbey is located in North Yorkshire. It operated as a Cistercian monastery for over 400 years, until the mid 1500’s, when it was ordered to be dismantled as part of King Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries. The abbey and the surrounding Studley Royal Park are a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.

The rest stop on the Camino is located in northern Spain. I can’t recall which building this is.

Artistic Prints

These three photographic images were processed using different techniques.

Lanyon Quoit in Cornwall was photographed on a foggy winter morning. I tried to maintain the foggy atmosphere, while adding a hint of frost on the ground.

St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tree of Life were processed with various artistic filters in Photoshop.
