Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge – Week 14 – Symmetry

I am participating in week 14 of Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is Symmetry.

Our weather has been very dreary and unpredictable lately. I was hoping for snow today, so I could take some symmetry photos outside, but instead we got cold rain. So, I started taking symmetry shots indoors.

I immediately thought of the keys on our piano. It qualifies as having symmetrical parts.


Sticking with the music theme and symmetrical parts, I started taking shots of my guitar. Below is my favorite shot.


When I explained to my oldest son (who happens to be a senior in college studying graphic design) what I was doing, he suggested that I take some shots featuring symmetry of two equal parts. I moved on to common household items.


But then my son got really creative and suggested that I use a mirror. What better way to show symmetry than with reflection? I grabbed a broken glass and filled it with a little whiskey (for color). I took shots from several different angles, but below is my favorite. It shows vertical and horizontal two-part symmetry.


I had a lot of fun with this challenge and I got to spend some time being creative and brainstorming with my son. That was the best part. 🙂
