Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

This challenge was a bit difficult for me – only because it was hard to narrow it down. Ben, in his WordPress post, says this about gracefulness: “Gracefulness is a tricky quality — it manifests itself as an effortless, subtle harmony between a subject and its environment.”

I often find this harmony at the beach…in the motion of the waves, for instance, or in the architecture of one of the many bridges or in one of Oregon’s beautiful lighthouses. Finally, though, I settled on this walkway, outside Newport’s Visual Arts Center. Until I read Ben’s post, I didn’t realize that one reason this spot appeals to me is the effortless harmony between the lampposts and the walkway: they are part and parcel of it. lampposts

The rhythm, repetition, and scale of the lampposts, as well as the material from which they are made, fit in perfectly with their location near the ocean, with its own rhythm, repetition, and scale. I want to go back.
