One shape that pops up (sometimes unexpectedly) in our photos is that of the humble, yet effective line. Lines lead our eyes in different directions as these photos may reveal. And sometimes multiple lines speak for themselves as design elements as they do in the riverside home on the Mekong in Cambodia shown above. Here are a few others we like.
At Pawleys Island, South Carolina, lines lead us out to the beach on the South End for early morning sunrises.
And then again at sundown, linear shadows, decking, and rails lead us home for the evening.
In Easton, Maryland, birds select favorite resting places on old wooden posts, as vertical images and horizontal reflections form graphic designs in the waters of the Tred Avon River.
A giant pencil points the way into the Wytheville Office Supply store in lovely downtown Wytheville, Virginia. A linear pointer, if you will.
And at the Parthenon in Nashville, Tennessee, our granddaughter joins others inside the classic lines of the massive building.
Unknown graves line up — not in a straight line, but a curved one — in Gettysburg National Cemetery, Gettysburg, Virginia.
And finally, a tour of Woodford Reserve in Versailles, Kentucky, will inevitably take you to the gift shop where you can see bottles of amber-colored Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey lined up neatly on showcase walls.
Every single line means something.Jean-Michael Basqui
