Order has been a very important thing for me from as far back as I can remember. When I was a child in school, I was often the only kid in class with a tidy desk, notebooks stacked largest to smallest, pencils aligned. And because books and papers were always exploding out of the desks of many of my classmates, we always had to turn our desks in toward each other so our teachers didn’t have to see the mess. I’ve always found it calming to have things in order, and I’m not sure if I have been like that from birth, or if it was a learned trait.
However, in photography, I often write about using lines to throw interest points off centre. For me, this technique helps to create interest in my images and help viewers see an otherwise ordinary scene in a different way… hopefully. But on occasion, I find beauty in symmetry…
Nice photos representing symmetry! I’m one of the ones who really loves it but not sure if I actually photograph it often.
Great post Shane. I enjoyed your childhood story. I don’t remember ever organizing my school supplies as you describe. Thanks for sharing
Nice interpretation of this week’s photo challenge.
Shane, you’re welcome.
