Our Picture This! assignment this month was Echoing Forms and we received a fantastic group of images showing this compositional technique, where forms seem to “echo,” or repeat within a frame. Submissions ranged from images that captured repeating patterns in nature such as the leaves on a tree or blades of grass, to more made-made forms, including images of machines and architecture. There were even several eye-catching images where animals seemed to echo each other, in a true expression of “copycatting.” Please check out some of our favorite Echoing Forms images from readers in the next few pages.

Nearly every culture holds the horse in high regard. Symbolic of strength and freedom, these majestic and intelligent animals strike a certain cord with people. We all seem to have an almost instinctive bond with them even if we’ve never been in close contact with a horse before. Renowned equine photographer, Tony Stromberg became aware of the phenomena after the publication of his first books Spirit Horses and The Forgotten Horses. The feedback he received was filled with glowing praise for his work and expressions of deep feelings of respect (and even love) for the horses. This information amazed Stromberg and inspired him to explore the healing aspect of this relationship through the art of photography.
