Sometimes, geometry is hard to ignore. I was reminded of that while reviewing a session from Encinitas, California when a happy accident of perpendicular lines injected this portrait with something unique.
My personal relationship with geometry is hit and miss. I’m fond of the practical aspects of angles in photography and billiards. Beyond that, I have low skills and no interest in the discipline.
This might have to do with my poor showing in the study of geometry during high school.
My teacher, Mrs. Miller, tried hard to get the class of empty-headed boys to just grasp the basics. Unfortunately, Mrs. Miller was burdened with such stunning physical beauty that nobody was really listening to her as our other senses were on overload.
She was a rookie teacher right out of college and couldn’t have been a day over 23 when classes started that year which meant that she was struggling too.
I learned a lot in that class but not much geometry.
