Challenge #6 in the Places I have seen, people I have met series. Hosted by paradiso.
Challenge has finished
The geometric shape/pattern can be made of anything. Lines, circles, squares, triangles, etc. Abstract works are not allowed, the geometric shape must something present in the real world, something that we've seen and shot. It must be a characterizing element of the picture, but doesn't need to be the only subject of it. If you want, please add some comments/explanations to the picture.

This interesting structure which I saw for the first and only time - was installed approximately the full distance of a city block inside of a downtown Toronto office building - the geometiric definition I believe is called a circular helix, as it has constant band curvatur and to the viewer is moving away, not towards.... Indeed, a beautiful, interesting and elegant architectual element giving the appearance of motion...whilst static in place.
