Theme ~ Diptych

Kathy picked the theme for this week:  Diptych.  Basically, this is a composition of two images which are related to each other in some way, and which can tell a story.  Here are my diptychs, starting with my header image:

Moser Tower and Millenium Carillon, Naperville, Illinois.

Personally, I think the tower is a monstrosity--our family calls it the Tower of Sauron (for you Lord of the Rings aficionados)--but it houses a carillon that plays at scheduled times throughout the day, and you can also climb to the top.  The views are phenomenal, which is the main reason I do like the tower.  Read about it here.

I chose this set of images because I love the lines that are created within the images--first vertical then horizontal and curved.  I also love that the colors blend so well between the images, and that there's a balance between the vertical first image, and the horizontal orientation of the second.  And there you have my reasons.  :)

On to the rest, with simple captions because hopefully the images tell their own stories!

Wisconsin farm.

Josh's honors convocation.

Dancin' music.

I was going to use two of the below images in a diptych, but since I couldn't decide which two to use, I created a triptych instead!

Rural Illinois farm.

I think the three images go perfectly together to create a "big picture" of the farm.  Thanks for letting me cheat a little on this week's theme!

  1. wow Christine, plenty of Dyptych's there. and like me had a trip

  2. I had a triptych, too, though I did not assemble it. I think it was kind of fun pulling pictures together to make these compositions.

  3. Nicely done Christine, thanks for the show.

  4. Very nice collection of diptych! Great view for the tower, but I don't think I would like to be climbing when the bells tolled. Strawberries make a tasty diptych, but I think Josh's convocation is the one you will remember longest!
