After reading Laura’s post I delved into Arches vs. Arcs:
An arc is a curved shape or the curving path of a moving object. In mathematics, an arc is part of a circle’s circumference. An arch is a curved structure that spans an opening and usually supports a bridge or roof. …
With this definition in mind, I am hopeful that some (many?) of my/our finds for Scott’s Arches challenge will not be DQed.
All this in mind, I think my post today is of ARCs not Arches.
Arcs line this walkway down to the new foot bridge.
Here is the new Footbridge that just opened last week after about a year for construction.
Plants and gardens often use arcs.
Arc shaped arms hold things sometimes. Lamps and things…
…and baseball catchers and batters ;’-).
This creates a nice visual, but I don’t think it actually supports anything except for preventing people from falling off the bridge. So I guess this too is an Arc? Or does this “span an opening”?
An Arc playground thing.
OK, I will end this post with a natural Arc,
I know I will have more Arhes and Arcs, and will probably have them mixed in together. If I am not DQed due to moving off the Arches challenge ;’-(.
