Lens-Artists Photo Challange 116: “symmetry”

This week, Patti is the host for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and she asks for symmetric images.

You can find symmetry in nature, but more often you can find it in architecture or man-made gardens (i.e. around renaissance chateaus). In nature, the petals of blossoms are very often symmetric and the leaves of many plants. Also, legs, arms, eyes, ears, wings, and many inner organs of animals and humans.

  1. Wow, Solaner. This is a fabulous gallery with wonderful examples and great variety. I have many favorites here–among them, the lighthouse, the great tit, and the library. I’m glad you shared them!

  2. Excellent examples. That mining tower is quite the construction! GIVERNY!! Love it. Been there a couple of times. Great to see it again.

  3. Excellent as always. The shot at Giverny brought back some memories. Perhaps one day I shall get back there? 😉

      1. Absolutely. 🙂 Who knows, perhaps one day I shall make it up to your country. The two plus hours, each way, in the Munich airport don’t count! 🤣

        1. 😊 great idea, Léa. Bavaria is a very nice state. I’m a bit further north (about 500 km) between Duesseldorf and Dortmund, in the south-eastern corner of the Ruhr-Area. Not so nice as Bavaria, but here we also have a couple of interesting corners 😊

          1. Corners? I adore small villages where one might meet a few people. I lived in NYC for six years, grew up just outside LA and spent the last sixteen years of my time in the states near San Francisco. I’ve had my fill of cities and prefer the quiet and lack of pretense many villages offer. 🙂 I it ever happens perhaps you and your tart baking wife would meet up for coffee? By the way, how’s the coffee. That is crucial! 🤣

            1. Coffee is generally good in the Cafés and the Ice-Cafés. So, you’re welcome if you’d come here when the pandemic is once over. Outside the big cities, you can find some interesting smaller cities like i.e. Hattingen or Herdecke. Both of them belong to the same county as my town and still have a nice old town. In the countryside between Wuppertal and Essen you can see some old frame farmhouses (https://solaner.wordpress.com/2014/05/05/color-vs-black-and-white/). I also don’t need big cities.
