Photo Challenge: Symmetry

It’s time for my Friday photo challenge response! The latest photo challenge from the Daily Post was “Symmetry”. Symmetry is one of those things you can find in all different things both literal and figurative. For some reason when I was thinking about symmetry this week, I really wanted to showcase a picture with clean lines. I decided to go with this shot from the summer of 2013 when I was in Brussels, Belgium.

The Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert (French) or Koninklijke Sint-Hubertusgalerijen (Dutch) is a gallery or shopping arcade in Brussels with beautiful shops and restaurants along the sides and a gorgeous glass ceiling or skylight throughout the length. The glass ceiling isn’t very clear in this shot – I was plagued with gloomy weather for most of my trip, but it is beautifully classic looking. One of those things that seems to transcend time. I feel like the shops and restaurants that line the sides of the gallery coupled with the lines in the skylight are a good example of symmetry. Aside from that one shop with the green awning, the building seems to be designed for one side to mirror the other.

Have any of you ever been to Brussels? I really enjoyed the city and hope to go back one day!

        I’m in N. Ireland Jamie so it’s a couple of hours – not major long haul but long enough to appreciate it feels like you’re getting away (if that makes any sense? lol) XX
