Lines, Shapes, Order and the Natural World

Lines, shapes and geometry bring order to the natural world.  At the molecular and subatomic level, complex geometry is a play.  Yet in the natural world we perceive, there is less formal structure.  Then came the need for humans to organize, build and engineer.  Today our homes and cities are full of shapes, patterns; order.  Lucky for us photographers, eh?

Given our brains run on electricity, researchers believe our perception is sped up when we visually view the world in an organized, geometric order.  Perhaps that’s why this old building caught my eye one day after work.  The strong lines enabled by the grid like structure and shapes are quite compelling.  I especially like the way it contrasts against the softer lines of the sunset clouds in the background.
