Two photo challenges in one week have dealt with symmetry. It was a topic I was fairly excited about, although I was a little unsure where to start.
But here is where I ended up:
I love it!
This photo came about because I happened to glance up at the mantel while watching TV tonight. The mantel is where we put cards we get over the year. Last week a cat had knocked all of the cards off, and I had picked them up and just stacked them flat, back up on the mantel. A Valentine's Day card had the ribbon hearts that you see, and they were dangling from the mantel and all of a sudden I saw this beautiful symmetry. (I have learned that the trick to great pictures is often beauty and fabulous lighting.) So I spent about an hour playing around with those hearts.
Unfortunately, for the DPChallenge crowd there is too much processing in the photo I posted, and since the sharpness of the front heart was not quite as nice as I would have liked, I'll have to do a little more shooting tomorrow.
