Well, this week I went on a bit of a journey. Angular … it would be easy to assume that it could only mean one thing – angles. And it does. However, angles take on many forms and are found in many places.
Nature’s geometry is subtle and it is easy to see if you know how to look. No less spectacular, however, are those man-made bits of angular beauty. My journey took me all over my new home and back to my homeland; from today to days of history; from the clouds to the earth below.
Thatchers at work in an Iron Age village near Stonehenge.
A VIP marquee at Duxford during the Flying Legends airshow matches the angle of the plane’s flightpath.
For the first time in decades, the two remaining Lancasters — one Canadian, one English — are joined by a Vulcan.
a Peacock Butterfly lands at a precarious angle on a spike of Buddleia.
Angular symmetry creates stability in the wing struts of this plane.
The support beams for the railway bridge in Bracebridge are juxtapositioned in front of the falls at the Bird Mill Pumping Station on the Muskoka River.
The claustrophobia inducing stairs mentioned last week led here. Can you count the triangles? I gave up.
Kenilworth through the windows of the Leicester Tower – Tudor geometry.
So delicate, it almost isn’t real.
The angle is to sell butter tarts at Marty’s Cafe. Well worth every calory.
The floor of the Norman Church in Garway — built atop a Templar Church.
Not only the angle of the shot, but the deep structural angularity of the rose pull you in.
A street artist’s work on Gallowtree Gate reminds me of lessons in perspective in art class.
I love the dichotomy of this shot; the Cathedral over 500 years old and a most modern home of the BBC.
It makes me think of the Danish architecture I used to see in old design books..
It’s taken me three days to compile this little gallery of angular vision. It has taken you much less time to travel down the path I’ve gone down before. It’s been fun taking you there.

Follow up to the original post: Thank you to June and Joan in Bracebridge for their correction to my description of the bridge. I really appreciate it.

I'm a Canadian who loves our planet and the people living on it. I also love to travel and take pictures. I'd like to think I've improved a little, but am pretty sure there's room to be better.
