This week’s WordPress photo challenge takes me away from the core style I use in my photography but has also got me thinking. There have been some creative and visually captivating entries under the theme of ‘geometry’ and I have seen huge potential for trying to use a focus on shapes and the abstract patterns of our world in my work more often. My entry this week comes from South Africa and the Cape Town area of Bo Kaap.

Accentuating the shapes in their neighbourhood – the Bo Kaap residents have painted their buildings in many different colours and the white paint on this staircase really helps the geometry of the building stand out.
