I had a lot of fun with curves and circles, so I’ve been thinking about lines. My problem is that I find photographing lines to be somewhat boring. I wrote about that when we did triangles and squares – that post really was about curves.
I’ve been looking for straight lines, because I’m trying to follow the rules. I wonder if it is significant that I’ve never been good at standing in line – I got in trouble in the second grade for that. Sometimes I even say things that are a little out of line. I admit that a straight line is functional for a bird perch, or when my plantation shutters adjust the amount of sun that comes in, when lines define colors on a display, or lines form symbols like numbers on the clock. Can you imagine curvy roman numerals?
I like lines best, however, when they intersect to form patterns (or maybe even curve a little to add some interest). But I’m not going to talk about how a curve is actually a line that isn’t straight. Or sometimes even curves so much it forms a circle. That wouldn’t be playing by Cee’s rules to do lines this week.
There, I think my second grade teacher would be proud that I stayed in line this week. Next week Cee is calling for texture so stick around. In the meantime, visit Cee to see what other folks have lined up.
