A Square Viewed

I am hastily joining the “square gang” devised by Becky at The Life of B. Her lines and squares challenge will end on October 31 and , time flies, we are almost there. So here are my “squares”.

William Blake exhibition at the Tate Britain.
Building in Pimlico, London.
Mushrooms in a crate in Soho, London.
Takis exhibition Tate Modern London
Hoxton Square Hackney London

Squares in London are green spaces which may be open to the public or are restricted for the use of people living in the residences around the Square.

I know that the Number One Rule for this challenge is that the featured photo must be Square. Mine is not but it is a photo of a square . I hope that qualifies. Thanks for this challenge Becky. I look forward to seeing what the challenge will be next month.

    They are fabulous lines . . .the square rule though is the only one and consequently I am pretty strict on it! So unfortunately I won’t be able to include these in the final gallery, but they are fabulous to see and it is lovely to meet you Anne ๐Ÿ™‚

    There was an old slang phrase in the 1960s about telling people โ€œnot to be L7.โ€ (Not to be square.) Perhaps Iโ€™m L7 for remembering it?

      L7….I did not know this one. IMHO I doubt you are ‘square’. I’ve always been a bit elliptical myself. ๐Ÿ˜„

    Good for you for an original take on the challenge, this is an interesting riff on “square.”
    The first glance at the Takis exhibition, I thought someone had been throwing silverware at the wall – two pairs of forks, and a saltshaker. But it does look interesting, with the shapes casting shadows on the red background.

      The Takis was very interesting. He uses magnets and electricity in his sculptures. That one has magnets that are poking out through the red cloth and the other things are attached by the magnetism . I like your translation of the images however. Nice!

        I don’t know too many modern artists, so I looked him up, and very interesting!

      I liked them as well. There are about four buildings like that on the road.

          It does. I’m not sure when they were built but they are not modern.

    The building in Pimlico, London, is especially inspired!

      Isn’t it? There is a whole row of them on one side of the street.
