“I love geometric patterns that repeat the same shape in nature.” –Tomo M
“The Brooklyn Bridge in New York City is just beautiful in its lines and structure.” –Marie. D
“I find capturing the small, often overlooked details within a landscape in a unique and interesting way a really rewarding challenge. Much of my recent work focuses on recurring patterns in nature and trying to record them in an artistic and visually appealing way.” –f22 Digital Imaging
“Geometry is everywhere and in everything in the universe, from giant galaxies down to the tiniest atom and beyond, it’s in and part of nature, man/woman made things, or a combination thereof. I’m particularly happy to find the geometry of the negative space – the space between things. …[Here, it’s in] a sunny triangle on the blandest of architecture – a storage building.” –bernadette230
“For me, geometric photography is about showing geometric patterns…patterns like straight lines, curved lines, circles, ellipses, squares, rectangles that can be described mathematically – in a certain environment.” –ckilger
