Goodness Andy, you're quick off the mark! I haven't even had the time yet to look up "isosceles and scalene" both words I probably know in Dutch, but not like this.

My first thoughts went straight to 'Bermuda Triangle' and Love Triangle,' both difficult to capture.

I'll have to give it some thought, but it's a nice challenge!

Don't forget triangular chocolate, triangular cheese, christmas trees (saw one on the UK news yesterday  ???), saw teeth, shelf supports. Ooh there are loads to choose from. :tup:

Well having entered a meaningful product shot for Halloween, I thought I ought to be a bit more adventurous this week with another shot in the dark .  :2funny:

As Howard mentions, you will spot triangles almost anywhere.  :beer:

Haven't 'set' my eyes to spot triangles yet, but I'm sure, once I start, I won't be able to stop.

You could buy yourself a Toblerone, photograph it and eat it afterwards. A win win situation.  :D

Just finished a toblerone last night before I saw this. Back home after 3 weeks away so will try and get a shot for this weeks comp as I am woefully out of touch with CC, flickr, facebook and mankind in general ;)

That's exactly the situation I want to avoid! The high of that win win situation only lasts a few minutes, and then regret and weight gain sets in, and it becomes a lose lose situation.

What's the saying Reinardina ... "a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips"
I HATE that saying  >:(

I hate it too Carol, especially as I cave in to temptation too often! (Husband has a sweet tooth and does not 'suffer' at all. When I have declined his 'kind' offer of something four or five times, I give in, as I feel sorry for him that I never share ... How stupid can you get?)

Welcome home Paul. This retirement lark is just like one long holiday to you, isn't it  :tup:

When I made the observation about triangular chocolate I thought of Toblerone, and you eating the props. Those were the days eh? Mind you, nostalgia's not what it used to be  :)

I remember the days Jinky ate the props, even though I did not have the confidence to enter the competitions in those days. I only started to participate a couple of months before the bomb burst, and the comp was left to its own devices with mainly inexperienced people.

When my husband took early retirement, we too lived it up with a series of longer and shorter holidays. Great times! We had not been married all that long, and, after a month in Barbados, I came home pregnant. (I am quite a bit younger than my husband.) So there we were: young aged pensioners expecting their first child! Daughter had a very booze soaked first few weeks, before I found out, and became teetotal. She does not seem to have suffered though. Rumpunch is possibly quite healthy with all that fruit.

Yep that`s the intention. My little photography business is suffering though. I turn down as many jobs as I do for being away just now. Sue keeps telling me to remember it`s just to pay for the trips and extras but I have to be around to get them.Doing a handful of free shoots / stock supply has just got me 2 months advertising for free in a local rag so it`s as well I am not out of the country again until February.
Don`t tell me I am the only one who eats the props. In Spain I was asked to ensure I got each tapas as it came in a really nice restaurant in Valencia. Trouble was with the wine and the need to get in quick to get my share I only got the first three out of 8. Ah well - tasted good anyway  :)

Stayed well clear of edible triangles and went for the over the top approach. I'm in with this one, a part of the Carnival building in Southampton. I've given the clear strong lines a nice feminine colour.

Architectural Fantasy.

You could start by freeing your wife and Barbie. If they're still alive ...

Have a good weekend!

Oh dear, I'm afraid triangles were not top of my list.  I went out with good intentions this morning and thought I'll easily find a triangle in central London, but got so carried away with the emotion of the day, that I completely forgot.  So, a rather desperate attempt to find something triangular from today's bag.  Will try harder next week :-[

Seems all of us have been to  a remembrance service. Thank goodness I already had entered my triangle shot. On the 'other site' I actually changed my original entry for one I took after the service.

I had a confusing shot of about a million triangles from under the pier at Brighton but thought that the shot I've entered a bit more like it :-\

Didn't have a decent shot this week, as we only had one day of sunshine on Sunday. The rest of the week it was dull and cloudy.  :'(

I 'shot' an officer on his way to the Remembrance service, whose marching legs made a triangle with the ground. Didn't realise it till I saw Howard's entry; till then I was taking the theme too literally.
