A colleague of mine began the August Break 2013 on her blog. I like the idea of making a commitment to posting a photo a day and using that opportunity to reinvigorate your blogging. I am already taking part in a photo-a-day activity with the San Diego Area Writing Project on their blog (which I, ahem, help to administrate), and don’t think I can keep track of two topics a day. So… I decided to combine the two–August Break 2013 (#augustbreak2013) using SDAWP Voices (#sdawpphotovoices) themes!
What does that mean for you? I means I’ll be posting photos each day and they may or may not have words that go with them.
The #sdawpphotovoices list of weekly themes is posted each month on SDAWPVoices.com. Today is the last day of “symmetry” and tomorrow starts a week of “curves”.
I have an odd relationship with symmetry. As a sewist, I try to create symmetry in my work. When I walk around the world I notice symmetry and want to capture it on whatever device I have with me at the time. But I have an equal affinity for discord (don’t ask my parents about this), and I LOVE the look of a pop of color or shape in the middle of symmetry. I love the juxtaposition of symmetry and discord. With that in mind I went through my phone photos looking for symmetry. Most of the photos below have a symmetry to them, but a measure of discord as well–either with their surroundings or within the photo itself.
