Week 5 of Khurt’s 52-Week Smartphone Challenge has the theme of ‘symmetry’. Reflections are always a good place to start when seeking symmetry, and bodies of water are always a good place to find reflections.
This pond is just across the road, about a hundred feet from our front door. It was completely dry back in the summer, but it’s done very little except rain here since late August, so it’s now an impressive little body of water.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week has the theme of ‘Any kind of house’.
Well, I suppose everyone needs somewhere to live – although probably not in such a grand edifice as this at Chateau Villandry.

This image is multi-tasking as my entry this week for both Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge with the theme of ‘Round’ and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, where the subject is “Patterns‘.
It is a photograph of one of the magnificent crystal chandeliers in the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, captured by setting my camera’s auto-timer and laying it on the floor of the prayer hall, pointing up at the ceiling.

Cee’s Black & White theme this week is the wide-ranging one of ‘all about nature’
The monochrome treatment of this image of the centre of a round cactus really helps to highlight the inherent symmetry to be found in nature

The glass roof of the covered open-air vegetable market in the city of Chartres is replete with symmetrical lines and angles to meet Cee’s theme for this week (and works particularly well in monochrome).

This bus stop was actually adjacent to the watchman’s hut that I featured last week. It’s ‘just’ a bus stop, but I liked the symmetry, the angularity of the shadows and the warm glow of the morning sun through the plastic walls.

Spotted on the way to dinner in the centre of Le Mans earlier this week:
I was struck by the symmetry of the ornate decoration and the (very) purple colour of this door on an old office building.
