Hard to believe that this is already the eighth installment of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! 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. [If there’s interest, I’ll be happy to do a post or two on how the brain processes images and its impact on effective photography].
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!
For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
This topic might be a bit of a brain/visual stretch, but I have every confidence in all of you!!
This image was captured using an iPhone 5S using the standard Camera app; Instagram was used for a bit of sharpening. The dichotomy between the right and left sides of the image is due to the angle of the sunlight playing with the iPhone lens.
