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.
