Triangles/ Photo Hunter

Triangle in green

This week's Photo Hunter challenge: triangles

OK, I admit I'm a bit obsessed with gables this week...but aren't they fascinating, especially these on old homes?

Triangle in brick

Three-sided figures, but all different sizes. Even the angles are not the same.

Triangle in purple

A triangle is a triangle is a triangle...NOT!

Love all the different photo challenges out there to inspire us, I need to bookmark more of them! Great shots of some lovely buildings:)

Oh, how I love the older homes, they just don't build them with the same character anymore. I have been getting pics of all the old Loyalist homes here in Picton and I just love the detail. These are beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing and again have a great weekend.

I don't blame your fascination with gables -- they are beautiful! I am a little surprised at purple tho. . .

see you there! said...

How interesting they each are and even tho similar in shape they are individual in execution.

You found three beauties! Excellent.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Gorgeous triangle photos, EG... I especially like that 3rd one although I'd never choose purple for the color of my home... But that one is pretty!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

great triangles, I'll post mine in the morning

Lots of triangles! Besides the main ones that you list, there are the bits and pieces of the roof or chimney, adding more triangles to each of your photos! But there are such differences in each of the gables; makes you think about why there are the differences, and why one appeals more than another...
Or even, why did they paint it purple?

Carver said...

Oh these are all wonderful. The last one almost has a hansel and gretel feel to it, for me. Happy weekend.

Something about those triangles. They DO beckon!

Rose said...

They are beautiful! Not sure which is my favorite...I am always looking at things like this and thinking how beautiful, but how much work.

Amanda said...

Interesting ideas for triangles, the craftsmanship is just wonderful. We don't see much of that quality/nostalgia in our homes here in California.

I like the gable in purple and white. It feels like home to me.

Aileni said...

My thought too, but from the inside, out.

Love the triangles and house gables! I didn't do PH this week. But always want to visit you and give a feast to my eyes, EG! :)

Cindy said...

All very nice! You mention gables- I've been noticing brickwork lately, especially on a lot of old buildings- some of it is beautiful!
visualize the lines

Mrs Mecomber said...

I hope you have a chance to see mine.
