Seeing Double β€” Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #207

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.
