WordPress Photo Challenge 11/28/2014: Things That Converge



 Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together. The November 28, 2014, WordPress photo challenge asked us to explore the ways lines and shapes can converge in interesting ways through photography.

My first photo, taken in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, aptly speaks to art—which here is converged with an unlikely object, a parking meter:

My second photos converge in more than one way. They represent a convergence of two towns, which were for a time sister cities—Ligonier, Pennsylvania and Ligonier, Indiana. A second convergence is of art and structures.

The third convergence is of the lights and walls in the Squirrel Hill Tunnel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Photo taken from our moving car.

My next photo was taken at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. It shows water converging with the sand

and incoming waves converging with outgoing waves.

  1. I had a private tour of Kentuck Knob by Mrs. Hagan. It is an unusual place and design for sure, from the copper roof to each room not being square (or rectangular). I didn’t get to see it, but it is rumored that Mr. Hagan wanted a place for freezers/ food storage because of the heavy snows in that area. He wanted supplies in case they were isolated by the inclement weather. Wright didn’t want it spoiling his concept. In the end, Wright conceded to put a basement in the house.
