Opposing Lines

Most of the photos I take feature family, nature, food and everyday objects.  Ordinary things that appeal visually and evoke some sort of emotion for me.  It is unusual for me to take the kind of shots below but something drew me in, I just couldn't tell you what it was.

 


 
Until, that is, I read Kat's most recent Exploring with a Camera, Opposing Lines.  These opposing lines have transformed the humble electricity pylon into something much more dynamic and interesting, giving new perspectives and drawing your eye in.

I am fascinated at how lines draw your eye into an image in so many different ways.  It really has inspired me to go out and play with perspective, lines, reflections and shadows.  It's amazing what you see when you are really looking.

Thank you Kat for another inspiring piece, and getting to the bottom of why I found myself underneath an electricity pylon snapping away!

  2. I love these Becs! Isn't it funny how we sometimes find ourselves capturing these "odd" things, and can't figure out why? I'm glad Exploring with a Camera came to the rescue! Great images, thanks for linking in.

  3. Becs,
    Absolutely love your lines and the POV of these shots. Gorgeous abstracts that are very powerful.

  4. Thanks so much for your comments. Abstracts are really out of my comfort zone, but I did learn that sometimes you just need to go with your intuition even if you don't know why you're attracted to something or why you're photographing it! It has certainly inspired me to experiment a bit more. Becsx :)

  5. Such graphic images! The strong lines leading in and out and around are exactly the kind of thing that draws my eye. Great job!
