Following on from Paula’s challenge last week which was all about lines, the WP challenge this week is about curves. Curves and lines are important ways in which to compose an image, and draw the viewer in. Curves are also fun to photograph.


A curvaceous entrance in to the walled garden leads you to all sorts of curves

Outside the walled garden is a pathway lined with mounds of neatly clipped yew


and a very curvy bird bath


Taken at Berrington Hall in Herefordshire last October. What curves inspire you?

I live in the UK, but when I was younger I spent several years travelling the world followed by a period living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. Well of course you could have visited it as it is not that far from Church Stretton. It’s between Ludlow and Leominster.

    1. I love the bird bath! Wouldn’t object to it in my garden, but I do have a natural one for them, which attracts all sorts of birds 🙂

  1. I love walled gardens. They remind me of the one at Misslethwaite Manor. That was one of my favourite childhood reads. Great photos for the curvy challenge. Those yew hedges must take some clipping. 🙂

    1. I have no idea where Misslethwaite Manor is but it sounds very Yorkshire and reminds me of a teacher I had in Primary school called Miss Micklethwaite!
