Tina at Travels and Trifles challenges us to include leading lines in this week’s photographs. She says ‘Leading lines carry our eye through a photograph. They help to tell a story, to place emphasis, and to draw a connection between objects. They create a visual journey from one part of an image to another and can be helpful for creating depth as well.’ It’s worth checking out her photographs, taken on her travels. They’re both informative and inspiring.
My first photo was taken near Kamloops, BC Canada. The Rocky Mountaineer train and the cars on the road follow the course of the Thompson River east through semi arid desert towards the Rocky Mountains.
These steps lead visitors at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC Canada down into the Japanese garden.
Creek Street, Ketchikan, Alaska is built on boardwalks above the water.
A line of pylons carry electricity for the national grid across the Central Plateau in the North Island, New Zealand.
You could be forgiven for thinking you might be blown off the end of the Earth before turning the corner on this dusty path at Seatoun, Wellington, New Zealand. At the bottom of the North Island, our capital city Wellington sits on the edge of Cook Strait and is one of the windiest places in the country.
Sand dunes and surf converge in the distance at Thornton Beach, BOP, New Zealand.
When I have been checking my rat traps on a hot sunny day, the sight of my ride home at the end of a grassy track is very welcome for both me and the dog.
Thank you Tina for this challenge. It’s made me see that in many of my pictures, the lines don’t lead anywhere. Something to work on for the future.
