ABC Wednesday: L is for Lines

There are loads of lines in the shot below. Long lines, wide lines, little lines, literal lines and reflected lines.
I was shooting the shot above from the third floor of the building in the shot below. The building I was shooting from also has lots of lines. Lines between bricks and lines across windows and power lines in the corner.
Update, I did my line post over the weekend from Friday shots knowing I'd be too busy to do much this week. However, I want to add one shot of the same building above which I took Monday when I went back to Durham, NC, U.S. for better shots, oops I mean to work at the office. Besides the building lines you can see the yellow road lines.
The long stairwell below has blue lines and more of the brick and window lines can be seen too.
In the next shot you can see a close up of the building lines and also coiled power lines.
Lets look at one last shot with lots of lines. I may be late visiting this week depending on work but I'll catch you lovely people when I can.

The more one concentrates on lines the more of them appear. They are absolutely everywhere as your photos so cleverly illustrate. The top and bottom captures are surreal with the window glass reflected in the sky seeming to mirror the clouds. Lovely!

The first composition is outstanding, great work with your camera and bravo for this idea!

Wonderful L post...I've been near Durham NC, when our son was stationed at Fort Bragg a few years ago.

Ooo! What a brilliant series of line shots! And, a brilliant idea!

Meryl said...

Neat idea and photos. I liked the first one best as I actually found myself focusing on the zig-zag line of the small fire-escape steps.

Great post.

You have some lovely buildings in your area.
I especially like the older ones.
The first shot looks unreal, like a miniature or something.
Well done!
