Curvaceous and setaceous...
I like a bit of yin and yang in my life. Sometimes we may feel like we are stuck with an awful lot of yin and only a neglectable amount of yang, but on occasion, it is all there, in exquisite equilibrium.
Looking around us, we will most certainly find nature seeking the same balance. Whether man-made or "naturally" conceived, different shapes and textures contrast with one another, thereby enhancing each other and offering a visual fiest of variation. On a walk the other day, this little chapel in a village close-by drew me nearer, inviting me, like so many times before, to admire its shapely, curvaceous roof.
And there, just in front of the softly curved craftmanship: some of last year's weed (?), stout and setaceous, prickly and proud.
A bit of nature's yin with some man-made yang.
