A Word A Week Challenge: Angle

This week’s challenge of ‘A Word in Your Ear‘ is all about angles. As stated in my ‘About‘ section, life is all about perspective, about the way you look at things. If you look through a camera, you only see a certain angle of the big picture and you might not understand it as a whole. But if you change your perspective just a little bit and zoom in or out you get a new understanding of what you’re seeing. Same in life. You can walk around with blinkers all the time and you will be stuck in the angle you see. Or you decide to use the input you can get to change your perspective. And usually then the big picture then becomes clearer.

You find angles almost everywhere, and here is a photo selection of a few of them:

This is was part of an exhibition about the development of workplaces in the DASA in Dortmund. Clock cards were stored here – the paper notes say ‘In time of the machine and the clock’.

These two bridges can be found in the outskirts of my home town. The one in front is a railway bridge. The one in the back used to be for pedestrians and cyclists. I clearly remember how hard it was as a kid to carry your bicycle up there!

The chairs were part of an installation in one of the parks around here. I love how you cannot really define the perspective here!


The Harpa in Reykjavik, Iceland. I have never tried to count all the angles here, but it’s many of them!

Is love defined by angles?

What are your thoughts on angles? Good or bad? Irritating or harmonising?

Yours truly, madly, deeply!
