Goodbye, straight lines. Hello, curves.
My default mode when I take pictures is to look for sharp angles and clean, straight lines. Give me an unmistakable vanishing point and chances are I won’t resist snapping a photo. Occasionally, though, even I have to acknowledge that round shapes and curving lines are fun. They can be playful, intricate, and supple in ways that hard-edged surfaces rarely match.
On a recent afternoon, as I was walking across Vancouver’s Cambie Bridge, I experienced one of those moments in which the joys of the rounded took me by surprise. The Seawall path below snaked (or is it undulated?) westward in smooth, rhythmic curves, and my rectilinear tendencies instantly faded away.
This week, share your take on “rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.
