Theme ~ The Shape of Art

This week's theme could have gone several ways for me.  But, after fighting with my once-beloved editing software for two hours to upload images, I was happy to have anything at all this morning.  :/

I took the simplest route, opting for shapes--rectangles, squares, circles, triangles.  They can be found everywhere, in both nature and in man-made things.  Below is the full image from my header, with all its different shapes of buildings:

More squares and rectangles:

A triangle:


Throw in some hearts:

And a star!  (Hey, it has five points.)

Almost forgot!  Here's one more rectangle, with some different shapes beyond:

Outside that door's window are our winter icicles, preventing a back-door escape!

On a spring photo session recon (scouting out a location), I started to notice all the shadows cast by some leafless trees.  This image below was my favorite.

I see the "V," but I also see, on the right, a pregnant ballerina dancing.  What do you see?

  1. Art shapes from nature, nice thinking Christine.

  2. Yep. That's definitely a pregnant ballerina dancing. Hey, guess what... we had a banjo & mandolin for church this past Sunday. The band played familiar tunes, but they had a bluegrass feel. I loved it!!

  3. Delightful collection of art and shapes, both natural and constructed!

  4. Nah. She's facing the center and that is her tutu. Quite a kick back.

  5. Christine: I thought you might have some great shapes. Are you ready to use the pool. lol
