“An arch consists of two weaknesses, which, leaning on each other, becomes a strength.” – Leonardo da Vinci
Arch as defined by Merriam Webster is: a typically curved structural member spanning an opening and serving as a support.
An arch isn’t just beautiful but it teaches us this … All of us have weaknesses that others accept and tolerate. We lean on others so that we don’t face these weaknesses alone. In the same manner that we should also help others so that they can depend on us whenever they need help.
Tina’s Lens Artist Photo Challenge for this week has the topic of You Pick It. I decided to feature the Arches from around some of the countries that I have visited. This is a favourite topic of mine to take photos of especially when travelling.
