Lines for our Eyes

This is a very simple photograph; there aren’t a lot of colors or textures. The subject isn’t particularly exciting or dynamic. But, sometimes that can be OK. This photo has some wonderful things going for it. For instance, it plays with line in a kind of fun way. Across the top of the fence, our eyes are drawn to a relatively straight line, but the sharp focus on the fence’s weaving forces us to focus on some lines that are anything but! And the shadows on the weaving provide even more lines to confound and fascinate our eyes. A big thanks goes to photographer Kevin Dooley for publishing this odd gem under Creative Commons. Thanks, Kevin!
