Arrangements for Jake’s Theme.

Jake’s theme this week is to show some photos of our idea of arrangements, be it people, things or places. I guess that most things look better if some thought is given to the way they are arranged. No-one would appreciate their meal being served as a horrible mess of ingredients.Β  It looks far more appetising like this.


Desserts can be arranged so beautifully too; almost too pretty to eat. πŸ™‚


Whilst we’re on the subject of food, Here is something which I found quite tempting, but not wanting to spoil the careful arrangement of these calorific treats, I managed to resist the temptation. πŸ˜‰


However, this gorgeous arrangement of healthy fresh fruit, was soon devoured without a guilty conscience.


The art of stained glass windows requires careful placement and arrangement ofΒ  hundreds of small pieces of coloured glass, as in these lovely examples at Chichester Cathedral in England.


Retailers need to arrange their wares in an ordered and appealing manner. Vegetables look so much better when thought is given to their arrangement.


Even boring old cleaning stuff and pesticides can be arranged to look attractive.


Of course the absolute and ultimate expert at arranging things perfectly, is Mother Nature. You really can’t fault her judgement, can you? πŸ˜•

  1. Wonderful Nature’s and the healthy vegetables all, I love most vegetables watermelon – and as boiled broccoli with plenty of garlic and beans!

  2. Tracked you down, at last! Do you realise you didn’t link to Jake, Ad? Not that it matters cos we’ve all found you anyway, but Jake might not?
    Love the naughty desserts. I would just look, so as not to spoil them. Honest!

  3. ‘No-one would appreciate their meal being served as a horrible mess of ingredients.’

    So that’s where I’ve been going wrong all these years!

    (I’m not ordinarily much of a desert person but that one looks amazing!)

  4. The second last photo, Li River, looks like I used to imagine the Land of Hobgoblins to look like, AD! They are all excellent examples of arrangements.

  5. That Li River one is partucularly stunning. I thought karst formations characterized caves – were those bumpy hills formed in the same way?

  6. Love all the pics,the one for dessert reminded me of the show I love to watch master chef,how a simple dish can turn into a work of art.

  8. I love this variety of arrangements, Sylvia. There are so many different arrangements by humans and Mother Nature as well; I guess we all want to make some order of our world. I love the karsts and Victoria Falls. And to think we really do arrange everything from greens to pesticides. What a juxtaposition. πŸ™‚

    • I live in Florida where I ate the dessert, and also in South Africa, where I had the Calamari. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much, Paulette.(What a pretty name!)

  9. Beautiful photography collection for this week topic,Thanks for sharing my friend πŸ™‚
