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. 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.

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

Great to hear your thoughts πŸ˜ƒ
