Patti is our host this week, and we are asked to think about symmetry. As she explains in her instructive and beautiful post, symmetry is, and have always been, pleasing to the human eye.
The header, as well as most of these images, are from Spain. Art and architecture here has its origin from many cultures including the Moorish. A fantastic blend.
Thanks to all of you in our creative community for your support, enthusiasm, and creativity. Let’s keep inspiring each other ! Next challenge, LAPC #117 will be hosted by Amy instead of me, October 3, 2020, so don’t forget to stop by her site and join the fun.
Until then, I wish you all a wonderful, creative week – and stay safe.

Spain is good country and beautiful country .
I love red killing festival but it is very dangerous.
I love Spain. But don’t know about the festival.
Splendid choices for this challenge, Ann-Christine! The Cervantes image is so crisp and clear. And i love the perspective on the monastery windows.
Thank you, Sue – I do love Spain! Glad you liked them.
Wonderful photos reflecting the different aspects of symmetry. That ceiling is spectacular, Ann-Christine. ❤
Glad you like them, Olga – and I too love that ceiling.
I haven’t been to Spain either and have heard that it is exquisite. Now I know so because you captured some of the most beautiful places. I have to agree with most of your commenters, Ann-Christine that I love the monastery the best and the reflections the second best. But all are beautiful. I like the rays of light in the first picture. All in all beautiful choices. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Thank you for commenting Marsha! I do wish to travel more in Spain (delicious food too…) and I really recommend it!
That’s what you can’t get from reading a blog, for sure!

The Barcelona photo seemed like the stage was set just waiting for you to come along with your camera. Great shot!
Ah, but it was…😉
Love your photos as usual, and your definition of ‘bilateral symmetry’ in biology. Looking at my photos it seems that all living moving non-microscopic creatures have bilateral symmetry. Interesting discovery!
It is! Thank you!
Such beautiful detailed choices for symmetry images. The way you capture the light and shadows adds a whole other dimension. 🙂
You are very kind – thank you!
You are most welcome 🙂
hi a.c., wonderful pictures that you have chosen I like them very much.
many greetings robert
Thank you for your kind words, Robert!
The wooden flower reminds me of reflections in water on the tiles of a shallow pool of water. I like it, Leya.
A beautiful thought – thank you for sending it to me!
Beautiful pictures from Spain, Ann-Christine. Especially like the diagonal symmetry of the wooden floor.
Thank you, Sylvia, I am glad!
Hard to pick one – the light and shadows in the monastery are great!
Thank you – I love that one too.
I think Sapin would be a wonderful place to visit. How fortunate that you were able to travel there. It’s on my bucket list, As a retired artist, I’m always fascinated by the work of other artists. Gaudi had an exhibit in a museum close to me. His work engulfed many of the mediums he created in and said so much about the man. Your Gaudi photo of the chapel expresses peacefulness. It’s my favorite along with the monastery walk photo. I attended high school in a monastery. It reflects the life the monks took a vow to uphold. Thank you for sharing your incredible experience with us. Have a great day … Be Safe
Thank you for a lovely comment, Isadora. I have visited several works by Gaudí and he was a really special man and artist. He is one person I would have loved to have dinner with.
I would love to have dinner or cocktails with any of the great artists. How fascinating would that be??? ~~~ : – )
Wow, what a fantastic gallery, but I hadn’t expected anything. That wooden pavement at Charlottenborg Palace is something very special. That was a great day out. I think I will struggle with this .. symmetry isn’t my strongest access. *smile
Viveka…have you sent me something…..special the other day??? Oh my, I think that was the first real laughter for a week and a half. THANK YOU♥♥♥ You always do everything right, don’t you? ”Fingertoppskänsla” in Swedish. I am still laughing. It was my hat, wasn’t it – the one from Lodz…
I couldn’t recite when I saw it, thought at you straight away … there is a part missing on it. It didn’t come with it, but something goes with and I was in such a rush that I forgotten it completely. I knew it would at least bring a smile to you day. I was sure you was going to take off the bling on the hat … but you didn’t – GOOD for you .. as I said in Lodz, every one need a little bling-bling in her life .. now you have enough for 2-3 life. *laughing. My Sweetest Girlfriend, I would share my last cookie with you … any day, hopefully soon, we need it both.
2-3 lives, yes…it will be enough. I sent you a link by mail – maybe something for us?
All of your photos are interesting, especially since I’ve never been to Spain, and you included several from there. But I’m really drawn to that wood floor. I’ve seen something like that, but for the life of me I can’t remember where. You photographed it well, so that the squares are on the diagonal. I like that!
I hope you will remember where! I just loved that floor, but walked into people because I was looking down all the time.
Gorgeous symmetry in every frame. I must confess I don’t often remember to look for symmetry. I must pay more attention to my surroundings. The motorcycle gathering looks awesome.
Thank you – I love symmetry, but somehow it seems not that fun to photograph it nowadays. It is like a sunset – you know – too exploited?
Ah! That is interesting to know.
Perfect and varied examples. Well done!
Glad you liked them, Ana!
beautiful images of symmetry, Ann-Christine! stunning header photo and the chapel and night photo of the church are gorgeous! 🙂
Thank you so much Wilma.
Wonderful responses to the symmetry challenge. As with others the monastery walk is m favorite.
Thank you, Anne – the light was so beautiful there, yes, I love it too.
I’m afraid I am going with the majority here in saying that the monastery walk is my favourite, but then I love cloisters and I love shadows. But all your photos are extremely beautiful examples of symmetry.
Jude – I don’t mind, it is my favorite too. I love the same things that you do.
I can’t pick a favorite, A-C. I hope you don’t mind that I like them all. 🙂 The one of the butterfly is just like things I saw so often outside our living room window in Illinois. I miss my butterfly bush.
I don’t mind, Janet – and this butterfly is sitting outside our living room window. In Sweden.
Great images one and all. I especially like the way you’ve used all different types of lighting situations, including night-time and the ones shot against the light are particularly effective.
Thank you! And yes – light is the most important thing. Love to play with it.
Love that chapel, and the light and shadows in the monastery walk, A C!
Mmm, seems these are the most popular ones.
I always love cloisters and the light through those is wonderful, Ann Christine. And I love the reflections too. 🙂 🙂 God bless!
So glad you liked them, Jo! I really love Madrid.
A beautiful set of symmetry photo, AC. The Gaudi chapel is stunning! I love the light and shadows of the monastery walk.
Thank you, Amy, it seems those two are the much sought after!
These are all beautiful images and work perfectly for the challenge. The Gaudi chapel and monastery walk really draw me in.
I am happy they look pleasing, Su!
Stunning photos for this challenge Ann-Christine!
Thank you, Aletta!
Wow, especially that first image. such detail. Truly stunning
Thank you! I was stunned myself when coming in!
Incredibly pleasing. Perfection
Thank you – I’m glad.
Beautiful examples of symmetry Ann-Christine. My favorite is the Monastery Walk.
Anne – I loved it there…and now I cannot remember where it was or its name! Getting older I suppose…
Exquisite as always Ann-Christine. I loved the Gaudi apse which is so much simpler than his famous Barcelona church but I think more elegant in its simplicity. Of all though, my favorite if the monastery walk. The light is glorious.
Thank you, Tina. Gaudí was a great master. And that monastery – I remember it so well, and its fabulous light. But, I am afraid I have totally forgotten where it is and its name! Terrible me.
Wow. Great examples, all. LOVE that dome. Excellent.
John, I always love your exclamations – thank you!
Your architectural symmetry shots are fabulous, AC! The floors are a great observation, too, something most of us wouldn’t have noticed. You’re right about the architecture in Spain. It is fabulous. Gaudi is a master of symmetry, isn’t he? I love that chapel he designed. Take care, AC. I hope you can take some beautiful walks in nature this week.
Thank you so much, glad you ejoyed them and the Spanish architecture! And the weather has been kind today, so I stayed outdoors the whole day. Hope you have nice weather too.
Thank you, Sheree!
Great examples of symmetry!
I particularly like the 2nd and 4th images due to the light and 3-dimensionality.
So glad you enjoyed them!
Fabulous. I actually particularly like the motorcycle gathering because of the way you have captured the light.
Mmm, sometimes we just stumble on things – and they turn out to be very special. Thank you!
Wonderful photos, Ann-Christine! Loving the colour of your featured photo and that small chapel, the monastery walk and that reflection of Don Quijote and Sancho Panza.
Glad you like them, Teresa!
