Frank’s Tuesday Photo challenge: Shape

Thanks Frank. This one really is a challenge:

We see shapes of all descriptions every day, but do we really take much notice?
Obviously we have the shape of the human being, some described as apples or some pears  and the tall willowy models in the fashion industry.
You have the shape of windows, houses and furniture, some pleasing on the eye, others big and cumbersome, or small and compact. Furniture plays a big part in the home, as does personal taste and space, and have you noticed how ‘just the thing’ you want now that was available five years ago isn’t available anymore.

When I was considerably younger, you could tell the make and model of a car by its distinctive shape. I could recognise a Capri, Anglia, Imp and BMW from a distance, but now they are all just boxes with a wheel in each corner with colour and size the only difference.
A mini no longer looks like an Italian Job mini of the ’60s and the ‘new’ Volkswagen beetle resembles a poor plasticine cut out of the original.

The most interesting shapes to me though are those we see in the clouds above us.
Faces, people, animals, toys, they are all up there ready to form, be seen, and then disappear as a wisp in the sky.
I’ve borrowed this again from one of Sue Vincent’s Write Photo prompts from September last year. I saw a horse on a merry-go-round in it, and wrote my piece accordingly.
Hubby and I love to cloud watch. We’ve seen rabbits, dogs, old men, teddy bears, all sorts and then just by turning a corner and changing the angle of view, they are gone. Magic.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
