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.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge – Grid


This week’s WordPress photo challenge is Grid:

This week, make a grid the centerpiece of your photo. Next week, they can lapse back into our photographic subconscious, but this week, let’s give them some time in the sun!

I have a few examples of grids, but for this post I chose the Cape Byron lighthouse, and the grid that is in front of the light that shines out into the darkness – to guide the multitude of vessels travelling down the east coast of Australia.  The lighthouse is on the easternmost point of the mainland, and is a much visited location.
