Curved - Thematic Photography


I've looked for different shapes than when we did Curves here in January last year.

Should you visit Cornwall there two places I recommend you see. First:

The Eden Project
How many curved items can you find?

Cornwall's cathedral is also not to be missed.

Truro Cathedral
And here's some curved furniture inside a Cornish home.

Curved chairbacks; curved sideboard
Moving to the USA I found this statue in Michigan.

Rochester, Michigan
I'll let you check out what's curved.

Meanwhile back in mainland Europe there's two curved places to check up on -

Planetarium - Bochum, Germany
Gardens in Monaco
Perhaps I'll finish gracefully nearer home.

Mount  Grace Priory, North Yorkshire
Now it's time for you to get behind the curved ball with our host at Carmi's Written Inc 184

I love all the architecture! Truro Cathedral is beautiful - but then so is the modern stuff in Germany, and the Eden Project.

Great Photos!

By the way, does anyone else find the words for verification extremely hard to see? I know my eyes are not goodd, but I really struggle!

Gilly - it's a regular complaint on a lot of blogs that we can't see the word verification clearly. I have problems too.

Love the photos. That first one looks like the earth grew a few blisters. Great old architectural curves too.

That top picture looks like huge golfballs buried in turf! Fun!

Hi Bob .. the Eden Project has to be one of my favourite places - and has been since it started being built - a remembrance of Mum and I visiting .. I now always stop on the way through to Penzance.

Word verification is a pain - I agree .. cheers Hilary

Love that cathedral, and Lisa is right the top one does look like golf balls!.

Bob you always come up with the best subjects...I especially always enjoy all your Michigan photos of course!!! But the first one here, if I wanted to write a Sci-Fi story I would begin off that photo...gee does that bring so many ideas to mind! Great curved view!

Great shots - the top one is very intriguing. Love the old arches and domes, too.

I'm finding the new system of word verifications quite difficult to distinguish at times.

Feels as if I am there

Lovely pictures of some of my favourite places Bob. I have a weakness for beautiful statuary too and that curvy figure with the ball is delightful.

Lots of curve balls today. It is all so great to see.

Some great photos and interesting curves; it's only when they're put together in this way that we usually notice.
