Lens-Artists Challenge #28 – Curves

Curves –

”In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.”

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

Thank you Tina, for this week’s opportunity to admire natural as well as man made curves. They are everywhere – if you just let your eyes find them… Sometimes you have to look up though – like in Trinity College, Dublin, and The Long Room.

Antoni Gaudí – a master of curves

Rila Monastery, Bulgaria –

– glorious curves

In my forest – colourful, natural curves

Lava, and life returning – in curves

But no curves are as beautiful and complete as those of the koru –

A short Wikipedia explanation: Koru (Māori for ”loop”) is a spiral shape based on the appearance of a new unfurling silver fern frond. It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving and tattooing, where it symbolises new life, growth, strength and peace. Its shape ”conveys the idea of perpetual movement,” while the inner coil ”suggests returning to the point of origin”.

  1. Hi, A-C. I’m behind in my reading this week. My apologies! Your post is lovely as your choices are great–especially the Long Room at Trinity College and the koru–which is a perfect reminder of the simplicity and beauty of nature. Great choices.

  2. Leya, it appears you had a lot of fun finding curves. Your photos are all outstanding. I must say the first photo actually made me dizzy with curves!! Well done.

  3. This is magnificent Leya! Gaudi’s work and your forest fungi in the same post is startling.. and I loved the connection! The koru of course is very special to this kiwi! Wonderful 🙂
