A line is a dot that went for a walkPaul Klee
And we can find them everywhere. Fences, walls, stairs, bridges: when we build we so often use straight lines. And nature too has its share of straight lines, although of course lines don’t have to be straight, and in nature more often than not they aren’t. A line is a line, whether the dot went straight or took a more meandering route.
However for Debbie’s One Word Sunday theme this week I’ve opted to focus on straight lines, as to include curves as well would potentially mean sharing almost every photo I’ve ever taken! My images therefore are, unsurprisingly, all of manmade lines.
So let’s take some dots for a walk and see where they lead us.
The Musée Albert Kahn, Paris
Another view of the Japanese-inspired building in my feature shot, which houses Albert Khan‘s photo archives. Despite appearances, this isn’t a black and white shot.
At Trinity Buoy Wharf, east London
Trinity Buoy Wharf is a cultural hub on the Thames, based in a mix of old brick warehouses and brightly painted repurposed shipping containers. It was developed on a once derelict site formerly home to the workshops of Trinity House, the organisation responsible for Britain’s lighthouses, lightships etc.
High Level Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne
This is a double level bridge with the railway on the top level and this road running beneath it.
The Brooklyn Bridge, New York City
In my view (and that of many others) the most beautiful of the bridges spanning the East River and linking Manhattan with Brooklyn.
Old railroad car at the Santa Fe Railyard, New Mexico
The railyard is an arts, culture and community space developed around the Santa Fe Depot.
A snowy road in the Lofoten Islands
Taken on a brief visit to the islands on the last day of May, the eve of meteorological summer!
