While I don’t enjoy driving on curvy roads, I do like photographing these roads that meander and bring our vision into a photograph. This week Ann-Christine is asking us to post images of curves. I look for curves in most of my compositions.

I’ve chosen to sort through my 2020 archives. I love trees and the way the trunk bends, branches bend and leaves hang.

At Mare Island I saw all types of curves.

Next we have three different types of curves: A different kind of cucumber, a sculpture wheel and a hillside of poppies that curves on the horizon.

And a beautiful curvy road near Sugar Pine Reservoir.

My exception from 2020 images is this one taken recently at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art. This museum’s architecture is amazing with curves and lines. You’ll be seeing more in coming posts.

There are curves, man made and nature made, all around us. Thank you Ann-Christine for helping us become aware of the softness around us. When you post your curves please link to Ann-Christine’s post and tag Lens-Artists so we can find you in the reader. Amy will be presenting next week’s challenge.

  1. Love all of these, Anne! The green macro greenery is lovely, and Mare Island 2 – gorgeous – but what is it? The snowy road is also a favourite , curving its way up the mountain.

  2. Beautiful of course Anne – they’re all wonderful. I agree whole-heartedly about the beautiful curves in the trees, but your last image – which couldn’t be more different than them, is the one that touched my imagination. Terrific choices.

  3. Like you, I love the curves nature brings us in the trees. They are art in its greatest element. All of your photos, stunning, and I loved how you used both nature and man-made elements to bring curves to light. Very nice. That cucumber? Different indeed. Donna

  5. If I saw that vegetable at a farmers’ market I would definitely buy it just out of curiosity. we have a similar looking thing here which is very bitter (Momordica charantia, karela). I don’t suppose it’s the same thing that you saw.
