Mother Nature's Curves

For those of us who are Monk-like, straight lines are the way to go.  They are clean, they allow you to line things up nicely and they just make sense.

I noticed when editing some pictures from the Sunken Garden, that Mother Nature really isn't so much into straight lines.  In fact, Mother Nature has glorious curves to most of her creations.  Some things are simple circles and ovals.

Some are more twisted and are complicated in their form.
Some have a bit of a pattern to them, even if it is a rough, loose sort of pattern.
There are bold curves, that make bold statements!
And then there are the sort of luscious curves that have me thinking va-va-va voom curves are here!
As much as I love straight lines, I gotta admit that Mother Nature knows what she is doing with all of those curves!  Just stunning!

Gorgeous! Love the dew on those "curvy" leaves...beautiful gardens -- I enjoyed catching up.

I never have liked straight lines. I much prefer God's lines. Maybe that is why I never freak out that I cannot draw a straight line. If God can't, why should an artist worry about it?
Gorgeous photos! :)

Those are some really excellent photographs. I think of it like highways...the Interstate is typically straight, and it gets you there fast, but if you want to see all of the beauty an area has, it's best to stick to the US Highways, the two lanes, the back roads.
