There are two ways to demonstrate forward with photography. The first way is to compose an image so that it leads the eye forward. The content of the photograph helps us to think about moving forward. This image pulls me into it forward toward…
It is also possible to have images of things that are in the act of moving forward – like these birds that were on the beach this morning.
On the other hand, the birds in this next photo don’t seem to be listening to the command, Forward March!

That first photo of the columns fading into the distance is fabulous photo Pat. The composition is perfect, that curved line leads the eye right up in the image and the scene does a great job of welcoming the viewer in for a walk. I actually feel calm and refreshed just looking at it.
Thanks so much, Rick. I really appreciate your feedback – it is very helpful to get confirmation on something that I also think is good. I took several of this walkway from slightly different angles so I could see which worked the best. I am still at the phase of photography where I don’t know enough to be deliberate. 🙂
The columns photo is great. It really pulls you in.
That is one of my favorites. Thanks.
I like your description in the beginning of this post. It helps to understand the logic of photographing for the purpose of a specific word. Great photo’s, too.
Thank you. I like both photography and writing. 🙂
