Circles & Triangles - Dove of Peace
 
1 Attachment(s)
Numerous triangles in this structure.

"The Dove of Peace Project was completed in the city of Edmonton in the fall of nineteen hundred and eighty-eight. The original Dove structure was designed and constructed four years earlier in honour of Pope John Paul II's visit to Alberta. Beneath this plaque is buried a time capsule, with the intent that it be opened in the year of the 200th anniversary of the Edmonton Catholic School District, 2088."

Not my kind of sculpture and I definitely wouldn't want to have to look at it every day from my front window. The triangles are plentiful, but circles? Maybe you're counting the street lights in the background. A nice shot, Scottie.

A most unusual sculpture but I agree with Walter's feelings about it.

It appears that you were too far away for your flash to be fully effective.

You've got lots of triangles but no circles as Walter said. However, as stated in the challenge description, you may have triangles, circles, or both. The "both" is not a requirement.

We've got a sculpture here in Honolulu that has the same sort of abstractness and made of cylindrical pipe (large ones). This looks like a bird getting ready for a first flight.
Ours from certain angles looks like a toilet bowl in the sky.
Aloha
