Symmetry | #ThursdayTreeLove

Nature builds up her refined and invisible architecture, with a delicacy eluding our conception, yet with symmetry and beauty which we are never weary of admiring.

—John Herschel

In my previous post, I shared a picture of the beautiful Osaka skies. On the way to the ornately designed palace, there were these perfectly lined trees at the edge of a canal that encircled the palace from all sides. The pretty Sakura blossoms with the beautiful trees as a backdrop certainly made for a very pretty sight. But the tree lover in me noticed something more. As soon as the bustling visitors were done with their selfies, I made my way to the spot from where I could take a few shots of the trees in their perfect symmetry. Selfies aren’t my thing anyway and definitely not when the sight before you calls out to freeze the moment for posterity!


Joining Parul today for #thursdaytreelove which is a photo feature on her blog that brings you beautiful trees from different places every second and fourth Thursday of the month.

If you would like to play along, post a picture of a tree on your blog and link it back to her post.

      Thank you, Tulika. Japan abounds in so much beauty. In most places, the landscape and the architecture seemed to complement each other so perfectly, one couldn’t take one’s eyes off them.

    Its a perfect click… loved the way these trees are standing in a row:) Thanks for sharing.

    • Esha

      Thank you so much, Angela. It is unusual to find trees standing this straight, right? That’s probably why I knew I had to capture it as soon as I set eyes on them.
