LAPC – Symmetry

LAPC – Symmetry

This week, Sofia is the host and she challenges us to find symmetry in our photos. These are my images for the theme, and although they may not be exactly symmetrical, I at least had some fun.

Symmetry in photography is a visual balance between two halves of an image that mirror each other.

Symmetry is connected to balance and strength, just like our bodies. We are mostly balanced, with the left side reflecting the right. This balance is vital for activities like walking.

A butterfly has perfectly mirrored wings. It’s necessary for its wings to be a copy of each other, both for camouflage and, more importantly, vital so it can fly.

Although there is symmetry in the images to the left, I thought it was a bit boring. So, I added some effects, but did it make it more interesting? No, no, but it was an attempt. Or, what do you think?

Ending with this shot from inside a church and you don’t have to look very closely to see that something is not quite right. But like I said, at least I had some fun.

I would love to receive your response! Positive or negative is equally welcome.

Sometimes I feel that we are afraid to give constructive criticism while we are very good at praising. Not everything is just great, we are all different, and we all have in common that we like photography, so let’s take advantage of that. Some see what others may not, why not share that.

    Such beautiful images, Anita. Each one is outstanding, but the beach scene took my breath away. Simply gorgeous!

    Photography should be, first and foremost, fun! Quite a variety of images, but those ‘bent’ chairs look decidedly uncomfortable and unstable! 😊

    Great choices of images depicting symmetry and well captured. The effects are fun and enjoyable. I like the butterfly, specially. The chairs are a bit of a “stretch.” 😊

    Ja, vad ska jag säga????!!!!! Du har återigen överträffat dig själv. Har nog aldrig förstått varför du inte anslutit dig till exempelvis Gettys Images… Men det är ju aldrig för sent.

    I din lek med fjärilen har du skapat en snygg och tilltalande bild, en modern affisch att ha på väggen. Stolbilden gör mig smått illamående, jag får yrsel. Och kyrkklonen får mig att tänka på vad som pågår här och där med kloning av… ja. vad? Strandbilden och bäret på gafflarna är höjdarbilder. Och även den vackra bron.

    Anita, your post is is magical this week. I loved all of your artistry but my favorite image of the set is the second one (followed closely by the third 😊) Terrific work.

    WOW. Great great photos. Very innovative! Love the banner butterfly, the ocean pier, altered chair and table, altered church pews. (Devils sit on one side, angels on the other please, and no whispering in church! 😉 ) Superb.

    Always a pleasure to see your interpretation, Anita. the fork was a unique and well thought out still life for the challenge. I also loved the dock with the benches and the bridge. All great choices. It is always fun to see how you play with photography . This week, I like the original table setting best as I like the wall in the back.

    Riktigt häftiga bilder. Älskar gafflarna och den idén tar jag med mig…

      Tack Stefan, roligt att du gillade gafflarna.

    It should always be fun. Of your editing, I think the second one at the church works better as an image, even if, as you say, it’s not quite right. It still works.
    All your photos are excellent in their simplicity and effectiveness.
