Linda Johnson Wins May Work Share “Competition,” SYMMETRY/ASYMMETRY

“Untitled,” © Linda Johnson 2018. SYMMETRY/ASYMMETRY Work Share “Competition.”

 

Congratulations to Linda for submitting this great photo that was the clear cut winner in this month’s ”competition,” SYMMETRY/ASYMMETRY.

Captured at the peak of action, the photo is a great composition and clearly demonstrates the theme of “symmetry.”  But wait, couldn’t it also be interpreted as “asymmetrical?”

Great photos often share this in common:  The perceptions and background of the viewer will engender more than one (valid) interpretation.  A famous quote is attributed to landscape photographer Ansel Adams:  “There are always two people in a photograph, the photographer and the viewer [I’m paraphrasing here a bit].”

How do you see this photo?  As an example of symmetry, or asymmetry?

Our next monthly photo club meeting will be on Wednesday, June 20th, 7 PM at the Kings Park Library basement conference room.  The Club will also be participating in Kings Park Day on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 10 AM to 4 PM.

Hope to see you there!
