Response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

One of the blogs I follow posted a photo like the ones below – a scene from an old German town – Luebeck – a view down the street at the convergence point where the road takes a turn.

Looking at the photo I realized I take a lot of photos like that one – I commented “Nice shot – I’ve taken photos in several places like this one.” Mitza replied “I hope you show us your photos sooner or later.”

Well, here are eight from a trip to Southern France in 2010!

I guess I’m also attracted to a converging perspective!

A New Face

IMG_2852I was at the dentist the other day. We’ve all seen that overhead light. It suddenly struck me that there was a face above me – I love the row of bottom teeth – I couldn’t actually see them from where I was sitting, but the positioning of the iPhone picked up that reflection. Other-worldy, don’t you think?

 

Woman On Ship

womanon-ship-smTook this photo in 2008 while on a Caribbean Cruise – the image reminded me of the paintings of Alex Colville – the lone figure, facing away from the photographer (artist), absence of shadow. I made a print and put it in my spare bedroom. I was just tidying up the room and stopped to think about the feelings in the image. Thought it worth sharing.
