What is geometry?
Having been married to the Mathematician for 40+ years you would think I’d have a good handle on all things mathematical – but no, I don’t!
In fact, I have probably deferred to him in all things mathematical over the years, which hasn’t been too detrimental to my lifestyle I have to admit!
But it was interesting when the theme of geometry came up a few years ago in a family photo challenge, I struggled, despite being told, by you know who, that geometry is all around us.
I ended up shooting this playground because I loved the curves, lines, and shapes – which I attributed to geometry. Apparently I was on the right track 🙂
I also loved the bright colours!
An artistic toilet block in New Zealand
This amazing toilet block was in the same area as the playground, we were touring around New Zealand at the time, and it appeals to my mathematically challenged brain.
The town of Kawakawa on New Zealand’s North Island, is well known for its Hundertwasser toilet block and the artist, Friedensreich Hundertwasser was known for not liking straight lines! Did you guess that?
The angles, the creativity, the colour, the whole quirkiness of it just begs me to share these photos again!

Doesn’t it just blow your mind? Believe me seeing it was an interesting experience!
Next week Sunday Stills is all about summer bugs and as it’s mid winter here that might pose a problem!
Now, if I could just capture a snowflake that would be a perfect geometric photo! Yes it’s snowing here again ❄️
Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment enjoy these images with me. Your visits are always welcome.
