The theme of the week for the Photography Challenge is Symmetry –
The shape we all recognize as “Love Heart” is usually perfectly symmetrical, as is this lovely old brooch. I would like to wear it more often, but the clasp is…untrustworthy, so it is likely to come undone, and get lost.
Not quite symmetrical, this pair of baby’s matinee jackets were both bought in op shop/thrift stores around thirty years apart. They are knitted to the same pattern, but are not quite identical, either, as the newer one has a larger collar, and only two buttons.
maybe I should have cropped this picture a little, so that the table was exactly in the middle, to emphasise the symmetry of the image. We were working on the layout of a book of the history of our local Hall, and spread all the pages across two trestle tables in order to survey the whole thing. You can see some of the local pioneers portraits at the bottom – our Hall is famously adorned with them, and Anne had spent months on the task of unearthing information about the lives of as many as possible – difficult since some of the names had been mis-spelled over the years, quite apart from the lapse of time. Kelly, on the right, has relatives amongst the pioneers – another piece of symmetry.
