Lens Artists Photo Challenge #80– Leading Lines

This week, Tina gives us an opportunity to explore the photographic compositional element– “Leading Lines”.

Leading lines in photography can lead viewer’s eyes to follow the line of your image to view from one point to another or to view the main subject. It can be straight, or curved lines. Here are a few examples.

Antelope, Arizona:

Landscape in Abiquiu, New Mexico:

Ayuttaya, the ancient city of Thailand:

The Giza Pyramid. The leading line seems forever long:

The camel riding in the the Sahara Desert was an extraordinary experience:

Tina encourages us to learn about this photographic rule. Take a look of her stunning leading line images. 

Ann-Christine, Patti, Tina and I look forward to seeing how you use leading line element in your photos.

I want to take this opportunity to thank my blog friends and followers for your responses of last week’s theme. Your photos, travel adventures, poems, and stories for the “A Window With A View” theme are beautiful, imaginative, and inspiring. Thank you! 🙂

Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Week 2 – Say Cheese

Say Cheese is happy theme for this week

The photo below was taken in a beautiful outdoor restaurant located at a small village outside of Cairo. They serve baked bread and roast chicken out of their brick oven. Two women were making bread with smiles.

Two lovely girls were chatting and laughing while waiting in line to get into the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

The grandpa and boy followed me for a little while, then wanted me to take a picture of them, so I did. As soon as I finished clicked, the young boy politely asked for one dollar.

We ran into many friendly and happy people in Egypt.

Cee shares Ingrid Fetell Lee’s inspiring quote:  Studies show that our expressions can influence our emotions. So when you’re feeling down, try “faking it ‘till you feel it” by smiling, doing laughter yoga exercises, or looking at a photo of yourself taken at a particularly joyful time.

Take a look of Cee’s Say Cheese. Join us 🙂
