Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves


So we’ve gone and done it. Here in the UK we’ve voted to leave the European Union. Now that’s a curve ball that a lot of analysts and politicians didn’t see coming. I know, it has really got nothing to do with curves but hey it’s a momentous decision that we as a country voted for. What did I vote, IN or OUT…..that’s between me and the ballot box.

Curves are everywhere, in nature, in architecture, in household items. Look around you, most things are curved. Right now I’m sitting at my curved desk looking at my curved phone and using a curved keyboard whilst I write this post.  You only have to look at this photograph to see those curves.

The Pin Mill

Even when you look really close you can see curves. Those water lilies are curved, even the wings on the Damselfly has curves.

Same for the Red Darter, sitting on the curved petals of a pond lily

Dragonfly

The petals, the leaves, the stamen, all curved.

Pond Lily

In architecture we have curved archways such as this one in the Pin Mill at Bodnant Garden, which looks out onto the lily pond.

Archway

It seems we just prefer curves to linear square or rectangular shapes.

Finally, I’d like to leave you with this slightly rounded shape of the pond which lies just below the main house at Bodnant Gardens

    • Sometimes I like to be different, I’m trying to get away from the purely landscape photographs that I nearly always do, hence the dabble with street photography earlier in the year.
