Not to put too fine a point on it, though this week, we challenge you to show us what “angular” means to you.

After an existential crisis and a stint working as an apprentice brewer, Xiao Yu realized he rather enjoyed working with bits as long as there was a purpose. He now wrangles data at Automattic in hopes of making the internet a better & more democratic place. He still enjoys brewing beer and attempts to run up mountains in his spare time.

This photograph was taken in Vancouver, Canada, on a sunny day. I was in an area of the city populated by random high-rise buildings. I found that standing right under a high-rise — and looking directly up — made the view much more interesting.

Repeating patterns that once seemed boring aligned to form another shape with more depth. The high-rise completely grabbed my attention when viewed from this angle.

What does angular mean to you? It might mean the corner on which you live or the intersection of sea and sky at a 180 degree angle. Angular also offers a chance to shoot from an entirely new perspective: from above, below, or even from the margins of the fray. Above all, have fun!

  1. Your angular shot has a great angle, btw! It had me wondering for while whether it you were looking in the vertical or horizontal direction 🙂
