Trees that have been ravaged by bad weather, remain in their skeletal form, casting beautiful reflections on this calm evening at Tralee Canal.
To live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world is indeed lucky. In this post I want to show you some more photos from near where I live.
I actually hang out in two places – mainly Tralee and Ventry, in County Kerry, South West Ireland. I have previously posted photos from both these places, and as I frequently take walks with my camera near my home, I have hundreds of photos that will just never get seen.
So, this is an attempt to show just a few of these photos, starting with Tralee. My favorite walk is by the Tralee Canal (see previous posts).
More later on Tralee Canal and environs.
All enquiries regarding photos would be very welcome and can be made through my website http://www.helene-brennan.com
Have you ever thought about how much your life is affected, governed, controlled by patterns and rhythms. Rhythms are intrinsic to our existence. Our bodies have rhythms; the earth has rhythms; seasons are rhythmic. Rhythms are all around us in our environment. We seem to have a basic need to organise our life and working spaces into rhythms and patterns. Without this organisation we would have chaos.
Small wonder that works of art are often designed with the use of clearly defined areas of rhythms and patterns, which are important aspects to the composition.
Patterns in nature are free and random, while still maintaining a sense of organisation. Rhythms and patterns are to be found in many art forms.
It seems our artistic sensibilities and responses are, in many cases, strongly influenced and encouraged by our need for rhythm and patterns. Often, in visual art, it is impossible to clearly define the difference between rhythms and patterns, but you know – it doesn’t really matter.
Of course there are many other aspects to a work of art, but for this post I am focusing on pattern and rhythm. I have selected some of my paintings and photos that have examples of pattern in the composition.
