Another month and another theme in Jude’s Photo Challenge. This month the theme is “lines”. Here is what Jude has to say about lines…
Lines are everywhere in our world. Just look around you. Seek them out to add visual impact to your photographs. There are lines within nature which can be straight or curved and man-made lines are everywhere in buildings and roads and even cars. Even a human arm is a line. (Go here for more information on the use of lines)
This week’s assignment – Look for vertical lines. Vertical lines convey a sense of power and strength, especially when the subject itself is towering and imposing, such as a very tall tree or building. Watch out for diminishing perspective on very tall buildings.
Into the archives for this weeks lines. First 2 images inspired by nature.Walking through this grove of bamboo as they tower above me, it seems as though they are talking to me. The wind blows through, making them rub together, creating weird and eerie sounds.
It was autumn in Canberra and I fell in love with these Silver Birch trees, A tree I cannot grow in the sub tropics where I live. But they make me think of the mini grove of 3 Silver Birch we planted in our Auckland garden nearly 35 years ago, and wonder if they are still there.The bamboo in the first photo and these magnificent crystals were in the “Crystal Castle” This magical sanctuary is in the Byron Bay hinterland and these 2 crystals are claimed to be the tallest on earth.Now for man made structures. I caught this student at the Queensland University. Maybe she is studying on her lap top, maybe she is checking her social media…Finally I had to include the iconic hi-rise buildings of the Gold Coast.
This week Jude has included the cranes on Auckland harbour. A powerful image, bringing back memories for me of when I lived in New Zealand.
