Cee has challenged us to work with lines and angles in this week’s Black & White Photo Challenge.
My high school Geometry teacher was a West Point graduate who opened my eyes—and my mind—to a world of lines and angles that completely took over my life. I had about 5 years of experience with mechanical and architectural drawing at that point, but rote memory got me through using T-squares, triangles, and compasses to define the world on my drafting board.
Once I learned the fundamentals passed down from the ancient Greeks, my world never looked the same again. For 46 years as an electrician, I used geometry every day to bend conduit, read blueprints, or to sketch plans.
This one’s for Mr. Lee, along with a long overdue: Thank You, sir.
