Lines going everywhere…


This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge from Frank at Dutch Goes the Photo involves lines.

Last week’s theme of Flowers certainly found a lot of fans, which means that it was a bit more of a brain twister for me to come up with something that I think might pique just as much interest.  This led me to depart from Nature’s beauty and head into the direction of geometry for this week’s theme:Lines.

Lines are all around us, to such an extent that our brains have learned to interpret them as visual cues that can both be useful and misleading.  In photography, we often use lines to lead the eye in a certain direction, as the image is not entered all at once, but rather specific clues are picked up, from which we assemble the overall image.  So this week, bring some lines to bear in your photography, and I’d love to read how you saw them come together in your image.  I think that this can provide some interesting imagery!

Lines are everywhere aren’t they. From the obvious ones in Frank’s post to ones in everyday life that we probably take for granted.  I looked through a few of my photos and have a selection of lines and what they do in each photo. Please click on the photos to see them in gallery format and a larger view.

I love photography as it enables my creative needs to be met — and blogging the results to others is a rewards for my efforts.  In return I get to see others’ interpretations of themes such as this one. It’s a win-win for all concerned.  🙂

  2. I have to agree with Miriam, all great photos, but that Ferris wheel is awesome. Great job with this weeks challenge.

    • Yes, I agree — I took it while participating in a night shooting class, where I learned the value of long exposure. It was a week before Christmas, hence the red and green lighting on it.
