This week, let’s take the humble grid out of the shadows, and make it the star–Michelle W.
I love grids. They satisfy my need for orderliness and symmetry. (Yes, I am the kind of person who straightens a crooked tableware setting before I start to eat.) So, for this week’s theme, I have assembled a collection of photos–some old, and some new–that feature grids.
Photo #1: Brooklyn Museum of Art. The color of this grid in the Beaux-Arts court in the Brooklyn Museum of Art and its massive scale are absolutely stunning. To get a sense of how large it is, compare it to the people on the far right.
Photo #2: Central Park Conservancy, New York City. This past spring, I was fortunate to go on a walk with my sister-in-law to the Central Park Conservancy. We walked under a lovely shaded arbor created by wisteria which covered the trellis overhead.
Photo #3: Tlaquepague Shopping Plaza, Sedona, Arizona. This bearded god guarding a fountain caught my eye. I’m glad he wasn’t guarding a drinking fountain or I’d still be thirsty!
Does the grid appeal to your sense of orderliness or do you prefer “free-form” shapes and designs?
So that’s my little grid tour across several states in the USA. I hope you enjoyed it. And have a great week, everyone!
