Line

With a bit of time to kill before meeting my daughter for lunch in Newcastle the other day, I naturally wandered the streets in search of some inspiration.  I love shooting in this city as there’s always something to photograph, and even the old favourites have a habit of revealing something new each time; this shot of the Millennium Bridge is given a different feel by the inclusion of the autumn foliage for example.untitled-59

My favourite parts of the city can be found between the tall central pinnacle of Grey’s Monument untitled-108and the river, mostly because whichever route you take the steep contours of the descent towards the quayside come into play, leading to a jumbled roof-scape that when viewed from Gateshead allows you to pick out virtually every significant landmark, as if deliberately superimposed for the benefit of some corporate Christmas card.

And so, I started thinking about lines.

Converging lines…

diverging lines…untitled-82_HDRstraight lines…

curved lines…

parallel lines…untitled-20scattered, bent and broken lines…

even the line between light and shadow.untitled-126

 

Returning home from this mostly architectural pursuit of delineation, I even found another blogger who had visited my sight seemed to be afflicted by the same obsession.

Perhaps the most interesting lines are not to be found in buildings however.

      1. Thank you for letting me be one of your first viewers – I like the wriggle and wiggle of it. Good choice of pic too!
