Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

This week’s photo challenge sent me away from my archive of digital photos and down to the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth, Minnesota, which epitomizes geometric shape and design.  The first photo is my formal response to the Weekly Photo Challenge, taking the advice provided by Quintin Lake, who guest hosted the weekly challenge:

Tip: Once you have found a good subject that contains an interesting geometry, try to crop tightly into the subject to make an unexpected composition. Your goal should be to create an abstract composition so the image is more about underlying shapes than a literal representation of the subject matter itself — by doing this you create art rather than a snapshot.

But, I couldn’t help myself this week and have posted multiple shots to provide context, as well as to share the beauty of Duluth’s evening icon.  Thank you to this week’s photo challenge for helping me to see the bridge with new eyes!
