Symmetry — Lens-Artists Challenge

Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for this week’s fantastic challenge, set by Sofia of Photographias: Symmetry.

This first one came about from me messing around with a spherical prism, looking at the refraction patterns.

These next shots are all reflections in Fannyside Loch at sunrise. I suppose they’re not correctly symmetrical, as the reflections are marred by a thin layer of mist. Lensy adds another layer of symmetry as well.

As Sofia points out, symmetry is plentiful in nature as well.

We can find lots of symmetry in architecture.

When I think of symmetry, I think of Scottish designer & architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

To finish off, a few random symmetrical images I found in my archives.

  1. Superb post, sweetie! The vibrant colours excite me, where as the symmetry soothes my soul.

  2. What a wonderful post, Jez, with so many perfect photos for the challenge. The one that really caught my eye was the unusual angle of the Kibble. You made something so familiar to me look so new and different. Thank you.

  3. Clearly you have some fine photos for the challenge. The white flower got me fooled. I thought it was a butterfly. How beautiful it is! Do I have to pick a favorite? I’d have to go with the empty chessboard. Fantastic depth of field!

  4. WOW, Jez! I could look at these images over and over again. Yes nature offers a feast for the eyes, but I loved that Lensy joined you for the challenge. Loved those images. And your images will offer lots of inspiration for others. The dice and measuring cups/bowls, creative! So awesome!!!!

  5. These are great Jez, silly as it may be considering all of the beautiful architecture and nature images, the games are my favorite. Go figure!! (and Lensy of course)

Great to hear your thoughts πŸ˜ƒ
