Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 191: “curves”

Curves are the most stable constructions when considering the statics. Thus you can find a lot of different curves in nature. But, also mankind learned to benefit from nature and incorporated curves in human created structure like products or architecture. As Ann-Christine has chosen this as her challenge for us this week at LAPC, I picked a few examples from my archive for you.


5 eggs


a staircase in Galeries Lafayette, Paris
a road in Iceland constructed in a way to preserve the homes of the elves and the other little folks
the curvish shape make the hors more resistible
same for snail houses
or bridges
and cathedrals
nature is the role model
and mankind copies


and a lizard uses it to hide himself

It’s sometimes hard to find images fitting to a certain challenge. For these tasks, I’m using the help of Excire Foto. I told the software where my image library is located and it starts analyzing the images. It recognizes the main colors in the images as well as the contents (what is in the images) and tags them automatically. Later, I can use the user interface to search for images with certain tags. Currently, you can save a few bucks when ordering Excire Foto, because it’s on sale. With coupon Code SPRING-30 you can save 30%.

When using this link, new customers can get Excire Analytics for free when buying Excire Foto before March, 31st.

Take care.
