No Straight Lines!

Green is out!

No Straight Lines!

A couple days a go I wrote about the dominance of  the color green in nature. Well nature is also dominated with curves. I do admit to enjoying the curves you find sunbathing along beaches :-), but nature has that beat. Let’s just say nature is into curves. You just do not find many straight lines in nature. While, man, on the other hand designs and builds with straight lines. Even the framing of this images is done with straight lines. What we may consider a straight line in these leaves still has a curve to them. 

So, when we walk in nature do we take notice of those curves?

  1. True enough–I love the lines of a leaf, like veins running through the hand, right to its very tips.
    Enjoy your weekend!!!

  2. Curves in nature is a great observation. The fact that man designs with such straight linear thoughts has always seemed shortsighted to me. I am a general contractor who loves animals and nature. Straight is only in my vocabulary when the code says it must be.

    • Thanks, for stopping by and leaving a comment. I jumped to your blog and enjoyed the small amount I saw. I will venture back later on today and spend more time. I’m glad we see the curves in nature and I think the more time I spend in nature the less I enjoy mans created world.
