Corporal Elspeth Henderson and Sergeant Helen Turner, 1941 by Laura Knight. Photograph: The Royal United Services Institute. During the second world war Henderson and Turner were awarded the Military Medal for bravery for continuing to work on their switchboard even as their RAF base was bombed. 'It is the distinctive orange-red of their lipstick that catches the attention, all their pluck somehow captured in the careful application of a little Max Factor.'
I love this image. It reminds me of movement and rhythm. The line right down the middle of the images create symmetry, creating balance in the image, as well as draws the eye across the image. It has a sort of Yin Yang effect. This image is a great example of Principles of Design http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmEIWgFYtGU If u click on this image, it is linked to images that a great example of symmetry.
