Who created symmetry?

PHOTO CHALLENGE: SYMMETRY

Before submitting entries to this challenge I searched for definition of the word “symmetry”.

Here is one that I like (from The Free Dictionary): “The correspondence of the form and arrangement of elements or parts on opposite sides of a dividing line or plane or about a center or an axis.”

Then I thought: “Where do we meet symmetry?” Is symmetry natural? Is it created by people?”

It looks to me that nature has only a few symmetrical things on this planet. As a rule beauty is not symmetrical. The rule of thirds in photography confirms it.

I think that symmetry (even as beautiful as some of my digital paintings) actually shows limits of human imagination.

Now it’s time to show my entries in this challenge.

On a huge scale

PHOTO CHALLENGE: SCALE

I was not recently in space and did not make photos of planets to highlight differences in their sizes.

I decided to submit to this challenge a simple photo below taken near our apartment house in Queens.

Everyone can see a difference in size and age between a mother and a daughter on this picture.

However, no scale can measure size and depth of their love to each other.

They are in motion among billions of other human beings.

Everyone needs love! On a huge scale!
