Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves

Fun with curves! That is what this photo challenge is about. After all, there are curves around us in great abundance, probably more so than straight lines.

Curves are sexy, mysterious, how can we not love them? There is a softness and charm in curves. Like the charm of a curving road and the gentle wave of the mountains in the picture below that I took a couple of months ago while driving from Amado to Tucson – a place not very far from the border with Mexico.

Thinking about this photo challenge last night, I decided to focus on curves that are around us in our home. Well, there is a good reason for it – it is very hot in Tucson lately and not much fun to be outdoors – we are still waiting for the monsoon to arrive….

So I took some photos to honor the curves that are often unnoticed and taken for granted in our busy life, yet they define the charm of that daily life. Here are just a few of them:

Bowl of apricoats

Fuzzy Curves

Stack of colorful soup bowls

Stacked Up Curves

Colorful teacattle with cups

Great Companion

 Light in the Hallway

White sea shell

Sea Shell

The shell in the last photo is a small treasure connected to my writing life. It sits patiently on the bookshelf most of the year, but in summertime (and it is summer here!) in the evening when the house is calm, I can hear it whisper – “Go to the ocean, go to the ocean….”

I might just do that…

    Just flew in a big  curvaceous arc over the Atlantic Ocean/ Mediterranean Sea and back again to visit friends on the island of Cyprus.  Wow….. what a place, people, history and scenery.  As always, the blog pics amuse and inspire.  Keep it up.

      Hello Mark,

      Cyprus?! I envy you this “curve” of your travels! I took a much, much shorter one lately. The next post will give you some idea. Would love to see the photos from your trip – blue sky, deep blue of the water, and the very charming houses in a sharp white? Thank you for writing – Alicja
