Briefly Symmetrical — Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #116

Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Patti: Symmetry.

My first few pic & the header image inspired the title; looking at a chess set ready for a game, the two sides are symmetrical, until the game begins & the symmetry is broken.

The board, as well, is symmetrical when viewed on the diagonal axis.

Dice sat a certain way are symmetrical on two faces.

In architecture.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh uses symmetry extensively in the interior of House for an Art Lover.

Vertical & spherical symmetry in Kibble Palace.

Some horizontal symmetry.

…and finally, a bit of floral symmetry from an Iris & some orchids.

  1. Wonderful gallery, Jez. Fabulous idea to include the chess set. I especially love your header image. But then again, your entire gallery is wonderful!

  2. Great examples Jez. Love the chess board and dice and the orchids. That mirror in Kibble Palace is weird. I had to look that up to see what it was. Love the Mackintosh photos. As much as I love Art Nouveau (and Arts & Crafts and Art Deco), I’m not sure I could live in that.

Great to hear your thoughts πŸ˜ƒ
