A Walk in the Sun Part Four: Power Lines

First off — I’m so sorry that I keep missing photo Fridays lately! I guess I’ve been a bit more absent minded than usual :/ Yesterday I was engulfed in the magical worlds of Romeo + Juliet (Baz style) and Amelie. I’m a sucker for commentaries and other special features so I spent a big chunk of the day doing that and being a lazy blob.


Today is all about lines and angles. While on my walk in the sun, I found I was a bit more aware of what I was doing than usual. Almost as if I were shooting with film, where extra forethought comes in handy. The difference with digital is that there’s plenty of space to play with different angles. As a result, I have a lot of pictures of the same thing (a lot of power lines). But that’s ok, it’s easier to get the perfect shot this way (at least perfect for me).

Normally I would choose my favourite out of all the variations, but I chose all four angles this time to show what I’m talking about. Each time I picked a different power line and matched it to the edge as best I could. The last turned out to be my favourite.
