Weekly Photo Challenge – Curve

Weekly photo challenge is a new exercise in improving my photography skills and imagination. Every week I’ll be posting photos in response to a prompt. Let’s see where this challenge takes me 🙂

This week’s prompt is curve. I think it’s in human nature to prefer and to chose simple things over complicated. Same goes for photography. Straight lines are easy to spot and to capture. Curves are trickier. They take more space, they tend to look different on the photo compare to how you see it in a real life. Also, they are much more fun to deal with 🙂

The first curve photo is from Helsinki, Finland. A lot of old houses in Helsinki have a name. This one is from Tehtaankatu, and its name is Koivu, which means a birch tree. It was built in 1904, and designed by Paul Björk.

And the second curve is from Rio de Janeiro. We were on our way to the top of the mountain and about to see the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer, while breathtaking views opened on the left and on the right. It’s hard to not go full crazy and start taking photos of everything you see 🙂

    1. Thank you, Yousuf, for your kind words and for following my blog 🙂 P.S. The real challenge for me when I’m taking pictures is to figure out when to stop taking photos and to enjoy the moment and when it’s ok to go full speed 🙂

    1. Thank you! No, I actually didn’t know about that place at the time of our visit, but a month later I met in Helsinki a Brazilian woman with Estonian-Finnish roots, and she told me about Penedo 🙂 Thank you for the links – very interesting reading! Have a nice day too 🙂
