This week Patti introduces various types of symmetry that create images that are powerful and dramatic: vertical, centered, mirrored, horizontal, and radial.
Radial symmetry is all about circles. It is often seen within flower images as petals fan out from a center circle. Other examples are spokes on a wheel, or ripples of water making concentric circles.
While I have studied various types of symmetry over the years, radial symmetry is one type of compositional element that is new to me. Consequently I decided to open my eyes to various ways to compose symmetry through the use of circles.
Hope you enjoyed these images. Be safe. Be well.
