Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 18

Beautiful curves everywhere!

 

After last week’s colorful round up, this week gets twisted with an extravaganza of curvature found throughout Nature and the human-constructed world around us.  This week’s theme of Curves made for simply gorgeous photography.

As you explored curves throughout, you shared a wealth of views of the world around us.  There were gorgeous Nature shots and amazing structures that you found.  I was astounded by the variety and beauty that you put on display this week!  Thanks to all who participated!!

After the curves of the Yoga Tree variety, here are some curves that us humans use all the time (until we go completely paperless 🙂 )

A product shot from a number of years ago, that has curves in all the right places.

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

  • Sayanthi, whose wonderful blog is Close to You, showed off curves in Nature in simply gorgeous images; go check them out!
  • Charles’ blog CharlesEWaugh provided a great view of curves within curves (within curves?) of a beautiful flower.
  • LadyLeeManilla is a blog with fantastic photography!  You owe it to yourself to check it out.
  • Emily’s, in her blog Zombie Flamingos, showed curvature ranging from a bowl to a cat’s nail (that could be ouch!).
  • Debbie, whose blog is Forgiving Journal, talked about the curves that life may throw us and how they relate to those she found during a walk.
  • Steve, in his blog Steve Newcomb Photography, showed various curvature on a cactus that is rumored to taste like bubble gum; I’m not sure that tried it himself 🙂
  • Nikki showed off a fantastic leaf in her blog,  A Kinder Way, from what may just be her favorite tree.
  • Judith writes Nature Knows Best, where she threw us some curves from mother Nature… beware of the spider!!

I hope that I got everyone’s posts! Go check out each other’s posts and enjoy the wonderful range of expressions that we find!

I have a topic of pulchritude in mind for the next challenge…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Curves

Curved with beauty!

Welcome to the 18th edition of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  It was a lot of fun to see all the different views of blue in last week’s challenge, which showcased the creativity of all who participated!  Great job!

As you would expect, this week will be a completely unrelated theme, even though it may be a bit predictable.  As my exhibit went live yesterday, and it has nine different views of the Yoga Tree on display, I thought it might be interesting to do something related to that wonderful tree.  What makes her so expressive as a subject and able to be so interesting are her Curves.

Therefore, your challenge this week is to identify curves in the world around you and capture what they express.  I’m leaving this entirely up to your creative minds, as any kind of curves will do with the pressure on you to capture something of great interest!  Can’t wait to see what you will come up with!!

As a nugget of inspiration, I’m including one of the images from the exhibit…

Have fun and find curves, whether they be in nature or human made!  And, if you feel like it, please include in your post what aspect of the curves drew you to capture them.

For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

I expect this challenge to provide some interesting imagery, as this is a color that is kind of important to our home world!
