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.

Patterns

It’s not a surprise that patterns exist in construction. If they didn’t, you couldn’t support a roof, or build a staircase, or have walls. But watching a building in the process of being constructed helps you realize just how many patterns there are. How many patterns can you see on this rainy day?
