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.

Nature as Art in Urban Life

I have taken a slightly different take on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Nature As Art. I am a committed city dweller, and as such, I often find nature interposed with the everyday objects and activities of urban life. Because of that, I have chosen photos in which nature and beauty are set within the life of the city, becoming its own form of art. Enjoy!
