Geometry versus Organic

I always like to see man-made shapes contrasted with nature’s and here I saw harsh, overdone geometric shapes being outdone by the shadows cast by this plant. I was in the hot-house at Tatton Park in Cheshire on what was the first dry and sunny day that I can remember. It was evident that everyone in the north-west must have seen the weather forecast too because we actually set out to go to Dunham Massey but when we got there we found queues on both sides of the road trying to get into the car park. We drove past and arrived at Tatton, drove straight in but the place was packed with people. It must have been the sheer relief of seeing the sun, and no rain or hurricane winds, that brought the world and his brother out to play!!

Natural shapes versus angular lines

Angular lines versus sinuous curves.
