A Photo a Week Challenge: Structure in Nature

While helping my husband put together a slideshow for his lecture tomorrow (he teaches future architects about structures…he’s really cool), I came across the first photo taken last summer. Spiders are amazing architects. Their webs have been studied for centuries by builders and designers. The Denver International Airport uses a similar tension technic in its tent structures. Arches are also found throughout nature, especially in my neck of the woods in Southern Utah. The second image is of Natural Arch in Coyote Gulch, Escalante (if you look really closely, you can see me standing in the water under the arch, just as a reference for the size of it).

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF NATURAL STRUCTURES.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
