Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge
“Geometry in photography — shapes, diagonals, vanishing points — fascinates me.
As someone who was terrible at all math-related subjects this doesn’t intuitively make sense.
What I like about geometrically-rich photos, though, is that they bring together distinct forms into one visual surface. Along the way, they also force the concrete and the abstract to converge: objects and landscapes are still themselves, yet already a little more (and a little less) than what I’d initially seen in them.”

Hi, I really enjoy your view of the world, thanks for stopping by my blog, Vonita 🙂
Thank you, Vonita 😉 Hope you enjoy the day 😉
Thank you! I’m on AEST, it’s nearly midnight my time 🙂
Ah, my favorite time to read blogs, too. I just got up a half hour ago 😉 I love having a blogging friend on the other side of the planet 😉 Makes the world feel that much more like home. Best wishes, WG
Lovely pictures again Woodland Gnome. I love seeing the world from your camera lens. And I was curios, what type of camera do you have?
Thank you very much, Sarah 😉 This particular series were shot in near freezing weather, which I think affects the clarity and quality of the light. Some of the surfaces, like the tree trunk, were coated in ice. I’m using a Nikon Coolpix S 3500. Not an expensive camera at all, it has some excellent features. It is tiny and light, fits into my pocket, and allows for quick “set up” without disturbing the birds I want to capture. Blessings to you, Sarah. I hope you’ve enjoyed the Thanksgiving weekend 😉 WG
Thank you for responding and the info. I appreciate it. Do you use a tripod with your wildlife pics? My current cam doesn’t focus well, esp with zoom and I’ve been looking for one that takes clear pics of wildlife with a good zoom so I won’t disturb the little critters.
My little camera is smaller than my phone. It has an opening to attache to a tripod, but I don’t use one. What this one does have, which is so helpful, is a feature to “freeze” the action so your shots aren’t blurry. It is auto focus with lots of helpful screen features. They are available on
Amazon for under $100. There may be a newer model now, and I highly recommend the Nikkon Cool Pix. I’m not a camera “geek” and haven’t had a complicated camera with lots of lenses and toys since the 90s. This is simple to use and I love the photo quality for my purposes. This has a 7x zoom, by the way. Best wishes, WG
Very interesting perspectives of converge. Beautifully shot photos…
Thank you, Suyash. It was just above freezing and ice still lingered on many surfaces. The sky was crystal clear, which made the early morning sunlight intense. A fortunate combination 😉
