Weekly Photo Challenge : Curve

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is to:

Get inspired by the curves around you. From curves in architecture to bends in nature to man-made undulations, you have lots to work with!

One of the things that changed for me, once I started to become more passionate about photography, was that I looked at the world a little differently.  I noticed things that I hadn’t seen as important or “attractive” in the past.  For example, one of the things I remember to do now, is to always look up when I am capturing a shot, because there is beauty everywhere.  In fact, I took a photo this afternoon that shows the value of doing so — a beautiful gum tree with amazing variations in the colour and pattern of its trunk and bark.

When looking through my photos just now, I soon discovered that curves occur so much in life, both manmade and naturally occurring.   Here are just a few of the many that I identified.

Enjoy!  Here are other bloggers’ examples of curves.

  1. Stunning collection of photos! I especially love the water ones – my favourite is the final one of the tide breaking on the sand. There must be something so all-encompassing and magical about living near an ocean.


    • That first one is on the island I lived on for a few years. I visit a couple of times a month — it’s about a 90 minute drive from Brisbane. The last one is a favourite and is from Banksia Beach, on that island (Bribie Island). I lived across from the water and this shot is from when the tide was coming in. Thanks for sharing my post. Have a great day/night. 🙂

  4. Kim these photos are breathtakingly beautiful. What a gift to be able to filter the dross of everyday life and really ‘see’ what’s around you. The colours in the main photo are beyond description. As an amateur artist I just want to try to capture it on canvas.

    • Thanks so much Robyn.Yes, that first photo is my favourite of the group. It was just on sunrise a couple of weeks ago, at Woorim Beach (Bribie). You are quite welcome to bring it to canvas. 🙂

        • I know the feeling. I’m getting quite some encouragement from a friend to add sketching to my interests (long story, but when I was growing up, I loved to sketch landscapes). So I dug out a sketchpad and some pencils (that my friend bought me a couple of years ago, but never got around to using) and will see how I go. It’s going to be a rainy day here, just as it will be for you, so it’s a good time to get going I guess. 🙂

      • Well I think many of them would qualify as calm and scenic – so maybe there should be an s added to the word photo-
        the curves of the sea and the different shots….
        But the Swan photo was a top one for me – 💕
        Oh and side note – the gum tree sounds interesting !
        Anyhow –

        • I love the sea — whenever I need a pick me up, I hop in my car and go visit somewhere…thankfully Brisbane has many beaches close by. The gum tree — yes, interesting. Not the best because it was taken with my phone and the light not the best. But seeing as you are interested, I’ll write a post about trees in the next couple of days. 🙂
