I am not a photographer but I wouldn’t shy away from calling myself a photography enthusiast. After all, who doesn’t like a good, meaningful picture. I have always loved capturing symmetry and geometrical shapes in my amateur shots and have also been fascinated with corners for a long time. I don’t know if it’s the beauty of symmetry or the mere presence of two planes uniting, that somehow involuntarily draws my attention to corners. Every Corner poses the simple yet beautiful conundrum of convergence as well as divergence, happening simultaneously. Staring at the corner, you see two lines going in opposite directions but stationed at the corner itself, you see two lines approaching it. An elementary analogy of this is every given situation having multiple interpretations when viewed from different perspectives.
Nevertheless, corners happen to be one of my most favorite photography subject and I looked through my picture box to share some of my clicks here.
