What did the acorn say when it grew up?
Get it? I know, it was horrible. That’s actually a “joke” that my eighth grade math teacher told the class. Why and how I remember it is beyond me because I don’t remember much from Jr. High. This week’s theme was interesting and somewhat difficult.
We’re currently living out in the country so there is a definite lack of large buildings with interesting architecture that shouts “Geometry!”. There are certainly some solid shapes displayed in this structure that I don’t know the name of though. What are these things called? Anyone? These things run for miles upon miles (alright, kilometers upon kilometers) out of the huge power plant that is in our area. I’ve always wanted to take a picture of them because I think it’s kind of cool how they just stretch as far as the eye can see. The fact that I’m weary of hanging out underneath power lines is what has stopped me from actually driving out to photograph them. I snapped this shot as we were driving past them just a few days ago, which explains why it’s not as clear and crisp of a picture as I would like, the dirty car window and intense speed we were traveling at are entirely to blame.
Even so, the bold shapes are easy to spot, and as the challenge suggested, I fooled around with the cropping to set the picture at more of an angle, which definitely makes it more interesting to look at. Better, but still not really a favorite of mine. I will leave you with another corny math joke.
Have you heard the latest statistics joke?
