Thank you so much Pattimoed for the inspiration.

I am not classifying these symmetries and mostly they cover different varieties of symmetries in photography.

Definition of Symmetry

Cambridge dictionary defines symmetry as ‘the quality of having  parts that match each other, especially in a way that is attractive, or similarity of shape or contents

As humans we love and enjoy symmetry.If there is slight deviation we feel it’s ugly.

But John Ruskin has a different view

“No human face is exactly the same in its lines on each side, no leaf perfect in its lobes, no branch in its symmetry. All admit irregularity as they imply change; and to banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check exertion, to paralyze vitality. All things are literally better, lovelier, and more beloved for the imperfections which have been divinely appointed, that the law of human life may be Effort, and the law of human judgment, Mercy.”



“If we humans are bilaterally symmetrical,how can our lives be asymmetrical??.Life is all about a balance”. Ignited mind


“Nature seems to take advantage of the simple mathematical representations of the symmetry laws. When one pauses to consider the elegance and the beautiful perfection of the mathematical reasoning involved and contrast it with the complex and far-reaching physical consequences, a deep sense of respect for the power of the symmetry laws never fails to develop”. Chen Ning Yang



“It is about the distortions of symmetry and reciprocity in life: if you have the rewards, you must also get some of the risks— not let others pay the price of your mistakes. If you inflict risk onto others and they are harmed, you need to pay some price for it”. Nassim Nicholas Taleb
