This week, show us something that doesn’t maintain a straight line.
In nature, we rarely see straight lines. Organic materials tend to have natural curves to them, a natural movement to their form. Snail shells, like the one pictured below, twist as they grow. The center tip of the spiral — the apex — is composed of the snail’s original, baby shell. I find this to be delightfully symbolic of life itself — the path and process of growth being anything but straight and direct.
In this week’s photo challenge, show us something twisted. You can be literal in your interpretation — show us the coils of your hair, a winding woodland path, or a gnarled tree trunk. Or, be more abstract, and show us something that represents life’s inherently twisty character. We’re looking forward to it!
