Nature’s Patterns #1

fullsizeoutput_1d87

This week’s assignment is to use a pattern as a background for a more substantial subject. Hopefully I have managed that with this macro. The bright red of the petals should not overtake the photo. They should instead, first catch the viewer’s attention, and then lead the eye inwards to the main (more substantial) photographic subject of the black and yellow center of the flower.

Leading Lines

I have, perhaps, a slightly different take on Cee’s Vanishing or Leading Lines Challenge. Rather than choose a path leading somewhere or a line of trees vanishing off into the distance, I chose lines in construction, buildings, cranes, and bridges. All of these lines lead somewhere. Maybe they lead to the next floor, the next wall, the next support column, or to the end of a machine, but all are necessary to live in our world. And serendipitously, the last photo I chose for the challenge happened to include a Brown Pelican who had his own leading lines. No, they weren’t, “What in the world is that construction crane doing behind me?” They were the leading edges (lines) of his wings.
