Thematic Photographic #184 Curved

THIS IS A THEMATIC PHOTOGRAPHIC POST

It's only natural that certain curves attract us more than others, like here. 

Can you guess by this photo what Carmi's theme is this week?

Did I hear, curved?



            Carmi, from "Written Inc. Blog" has taken a "curve' around the corner away from pairs and offered "curved" as our TP theme this week!  Mighty fine curve he posted too, check it out! 


           Being thrown a curve isn't always pleasant, unless the curve is as cool as our winter this year.  The photo below, shot in January 2012.



Along our way, we often meet a curve or two, but aren't those the unexpected interruptions which make our journey most memorable? 
I think so.



Isn't it almost silly that normally I'd be fighting snowflakes and these walks would be so snow packed that I'd be standing on a snowbank for this recent photo?




Another photo in late January 2012.....
Just what is it with winter this year anyway?

With weather like this how can anyone have a gloomy day, right?



...and yet, even through all this melting process....the sun seems to always be hiding somewhere.
...and all you winter lovers don't worry with every bend or curve you take you can land on ice, if you walk far enough.

Just leave your vehicle on the road!  Please!

After an old friend from high school viewed some photos I posted on FB from last Sunday his response was,  "Where's all your snow?"

Well, they say it's coming tonight actually......



...and it fell, making the morning commute not as speedy and carefree as normal.  But already by this afternoon it's slipping away!  Again, this recent snow shall pass quickly.....as winter is toying with us and sending us from one curve to the next...spring today, winter tomorrow....
Truthfully, I'm enjoying every mysterious moment of what will today be?
It'll never throw me a curve that I can't handle!

I just wish it would throw in a few more sunny days!

Sometimes, I forget what my shadow looks like, haven't you?!

 

It's a long slide down the curve of this steep hill.....but it can be done......just on the other side......!



If you want to curve through other curved posts or care to bring your own
please just go here

the more the better!

As always, great photos and great commentary to go with them. I really like that abstract person in the first photo. As for the snow, we have the same "problem" here in Utah also - none of it. The mountains finally got some this week, but there is still none on the roads and driveway(very good) and less than 1/2 inch on my yard. Just one of those winters.

Nice bridge.
That's a very unusual statue as well.

Alexia - thanks, but I just viewed your beautiful curves! Oh yes I need to plan an out of the country trip again...and soon...so much to see!

Max- I know, and so many drivers are not being as careful as they should. Yesterdays brief dumping of snow claimed the lives of 4 college girls returning back to school after coming home for the holiday weekend. Slippery roads and blowing snow were the main cause...that's the part of winter I truly hate...when it takes precious lives.

Your soccer goal keeper has either jumped too soon or the curved ball beat him. I'd take those walks without the snow every time.

All sorts of thoughts come to mind about "curved". I'm wondering what the top photo actually is - a permanent sculpture, I am guessing. It's beautiful.

Little Nell said...

Words and pictures all beautifully curvy! That first one is a real eye-catcher!

I sort of like when a post tells me exactly what it is...as long as the pictures don't suck(they don't).~Mary
