CCY WeeK #14: Symmetry

“Using symmetry in your photography can lend interest to your pictures by making them more subconsciously beautiful to your viewer’s eye.  It can elevate your subject matter, if done correctly.”, Cee explains.

For Cee’s COMPOSE YOURSELF PHOTO CHALLENGE (CCY), Cee wants us to post 4 to 6 photos.

This office building below is located in Austin, Texas; both sides from the center that are the same in size and shape. This symmetrical structure goes around the four sides of the building.


The center piece of the Longwood Gardens shows the quality of symmetrical parts.


The structure of the pier is another good example:


The photo below is the architecture of the Baths of Lady Maria de Padilla at the Alcázar of Seville. It presents balanced proportion all around beautifully.


 The Brooklyn Bridge in New York City uses its leading line to its perfect symmetry.

Brooklyn Briday Symmetry-2

(Notes: When Washington Roebling’s paralyzing injury, his wife Emily Warren Roebling stepped in as the “first woman field engineer”. On that opening day, May 24, 1883, a total of 1,800 vehicles and 150,300 people crossed. Emily Warren Roebling was the first to cross the bridge.)

Cee is providing some excellent examples for the symmetry theme, take a look… She combines “tips and tricks” with photos for this weekly theme. Thank you, Cee!

Thank you for visiting! Happy Thursday 🙂

  1. What for stunning photographies! I´m very impressed. It would be interesting to know why humans like symmetry that much. Maybe because they have a symmetry axis across their bodies? But remember: The world isn´t alwys symmetric: If there had been the same amount of matter and antimatter in the early universe, they would have destroyed themselves in a symmetric way and nothing (but energy) exsisted at all… If the cross section of an airplain´s wing was symmetric, it wouldn´t take off and so on…

    I think there is something fascinating in certain kinds of asymmetry as well; thinking e.g. of the golden cut.

    P.S. Seville is really beautiful 🙂


  2. I might be late,but I never miss a post of your own,dear Amy!Astonished by your masterful photography and the symmetry displayed!The opening photo is a real masterpiece of symmetrical architecture and so are the Longwood gardens with the gushing fountains and the symmetrical topiaries!The textures and the lighting conditions in the baths impressively stress out symmetry too!Interesting the info about the magnificent Brooklyn Bridge and grand its construction 🙂 >3 xxx
