Focus On Life~Week 12~Observe The Curve

We move, live and love in curves.  Arms, legs, and bodies curve to propel us into the life around us.  Branches of trees curve to embrace the breeze.  Letters curve and form words.  Curves can keep things apart, hold things together or create a path.  This week take a moment to focus on all the different kinds of curves that surround you every day.

I got excited when I read this week's prompt.  I'm a curve girl!  I've always preferred curves over straight lines and it shows all through my house.  I chose to focus on this antique ink well my husband gave me many many years ago for my birthday.  I'm so in love with the graceful curves!







To see more curves, visit Sally at The Studio Sublime.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Do you use it? Do you have ink in the 'well' and a pen to dip... What a lovely piece.. I seem to have more straight lines in this house than curves... the floors are all hardwood and tiles so I guess I just follow the straight lines on the floor into the furniture!

  12. nice picture. I'm trying to improve my photography and your blog is really helping me find some inspiration. I would have never just thought to just take a simple object and try various angles and positions.
