A Matter of Symmetry

This is the Education Center at a local park.

Monochrome/cropped version.

I wanted to remove all extraneous details around the subject and make it look otherworldly. I think the creation of a moody sky adds to the total effect I was searching for. Pyramid power!


“Pyramids are believed to be extremely sacred in many cultures around the world. Many churches are built with pyramid-like steeples and ancient pyramid structures can be found not just in Egypt, but in South America and parts of Asia.

The Native Americans also sat in tipis to conduct rituals and ceremonies, which have a pyramid like shape to them. It was believed that this shape helped to connect them with the earth and the heavens above.” (Tanaaz)

    Hi, Olga. You definitely achieved your goal. The metallic finish and b & w makes it look eerie like it came from a science fiction film! It’s a great choice for the challenge.

    I’ve sometimes enjoyed this black and white effect by placing my hand on a xerox machine and observing the black and white imprint. X rays can work well in this regard as well.
