The masculine triangle..!



Heading into the city in search of triangles for April's theme I was a little worried that it may not be that easy.. When really looking I couldn't believe how many times the triangle features in Perth architecture, old and new.  Discovering that the triangle pointing upwards is a strong masculine sign the BHP Billiton offices above takes on an almost phallic presence n'est pas :) but if you look at the Central Park building in the background below there's a whole lot of triangle action going on also!


.... and then there's the triangle that hasn't any mystical powers at all, it's simply a quiet place to sit and enjoy a restful moment in the middle of the city bustle,  although this gent is sitting at the pointy end, is he silently 'recharging' his masculine energy before tackling a difficult situation :) Happy Monday, we are having a wee bit of rain so all good, take care...

  1. Looks like a nice spot for a rest, and yes... those towers are phallic!

    Excellent choices for the theme day, Grace!

  8. I'm coming to Perth this week and will be looking out for triangles now, as well as everything else on the long list . . . . how very interesting this is Grace: now how about the soft roundness of womanhood, for we can't be over-run can we, haha! Glad you also have had rain! Joy x

  10. The design in the first building is unusual but not unique. It's wind bracing. We have a very similar one in downtown STL.

  13. I'm glad that you mentioned the phallic angle of the photo, my first thought with your "masculine" description. . . I never know whether or not I should mention it when I see one. Great find and description.

  16. Very dominant triangles in the BHP building Grace. I was wondering what I was going to post for this months theme and was amazed to see so many triangles once I began looking through my "To be blogged" collection. Cheers J.

  22. Towers, pinacles and triangles are all very masculine I agree. There are lots in Paris, starting with the Eiffel Tower, of course!
