Belfast, Northern Ireland, June 2013
I hate to miss a photo challenge. This time I’m weighing in late, due to technological incompetency. But the photographs themselves were timely, capturing coastal curves during last week’s challenge.
Above is one of my favorites, from the curves of falling layers of my daughter’s gorgeous hair to the camera strap snaking across her shoulder, from the wall’s undulating graphics to its long arc as it recedes in the background.
More coastal curves, with clickable bonus haiku (because I just can’t help myself):
Arcing, curving bricks/Earth tones in concentric waves/Even the fence bobs
The clock’s face is curved/As is the tower, rounding/A block in Belfast
Curving, curling gold/A descending tornado/Silver-gray inside
A terracotta/Nautilus, carved waves circling/Reverse bas relief ?
Magnificent curves/Lemon and teal, arching up/World’s fanciest store?
Reflections can turn/Even stalwart stone towers/To wavering curves
A curving facade/Glistening red-brown and tan/Colors of the earth
Interlocking curves/Entwined colors form patterns/Sunbursts in the rain
Drogheda sunset/Red-violet hues in the sky/Also curve in sea
A wild Irish rose/Sunlit petals curve softly/As does spider’s web
Gold and ruby glass/Cut like gemstones, curving to/meet at light-filled dome
A riot of curves/When I glance at the ceiling/In Dublin village
