Challenge of the month, 01/21: Polygons

This month’s challenge comes to us thanks to Nancy (and Rocky extends a special note of thanks, because she’s tired of my lame ideas): Polygons.  For those who have forgotten everything they learned in HS Geometry, a polygon is a plane figure with at least three straight sides and angles, and typically five or more.  Also, note that plane in this context means 2-D, not a flying machine.

This sounds like it should be easy, but I wonder.  I’ve got about 1,500 photos on my iPad right now, and none of them were suitable as an example.  I’m going to have to change what I’m looking for.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    I have a few things in mind, but don’t be too disappointed if I have to fall back to a picture of a “Give Way” sign. (It is actually really hard to find STOP signs in Oz – it’s either a Give Way, a roundabout or a traffic light. Can’t recall the last time I saw a stop sign here).

    Sounds challenging… Nancy has raised the bar. It won’t be too difficult for her, though!

      I cannot take ALL the credit ;’-). My suggestion was ‘geometric shapes’ — any shape. Scott made it more of a challenge by narrowing it to ‘polygons’.

      Thanks for your confidence in me Suzanne, but I am not really too sure about this one. I will ponder and ponder upon it.

        Right. Make me out as the mean drill sergeant. I thought I was making it easier actually, by opening it up to irregular shapes.

    I will definitely be on the lookout. I look forward to what other people come up with.
