This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Order – a concept which, if I’m honest, has never played a large role in my life (afraid I’ve always tended toward the messy…).
Though I have little personal experience – and no expertise whatsoever – when it comes to order, the word did make me think of my visit to Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. Once the winter digs of its designer, architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and now a National Historic Landmark, it’s one of the only first-hand examples I’ve so far gotten to see of Wright’s brilliance at harmonizing ordered designs with natural settings – of creating stunning synergy between them whether he was crafting a house right over a waterfall (Fallingwater in Pennsylvania) or a studio/home in the desert.
Alas, order isn’t a natural state for me. Maybe that’s why I marvel at places like Taliesin West where order and nature (order out of nature, I guess) seem to compliment one another in such a magnificent way!
Makes me think there may be some harmony to be found in keeping my own home in order. But, you know – I’m not gonna get crazy. 😉
