Most of the obvious edges I could locate came from man made items in architecture. The sharp caulked line of a protruding corner made of a cobalt blue tiles. Geometric tile edges softened by the reflection in the polished surfaces. Ridged metal lines of an awning on bathhouse bow. The solid design soften by scroll work and stained glass.
Nature paints her edges with land, light and distance. The horizon of a sunrise in the vast flat Wyoming landscape. Layers of the Ouachita Mountains fading into fog at sunrise. A spring branch bathed in soft light as new leaves begin to unfurl.
Angles, curves and light can obfuscate or enhance the edges of man made and natural architecture.
Love the reflections in the blue tiles.
Thank You Maggie, I love tiles. Many of the historic buildings in Hot Springs have beautiful tile work details.
Thank You 🙂
Nice photos! I used the window right above that Fordyce awning for my photo101 “Architecture” photo. It still surprised me whenever your photos of familiar places pop up on my computer screen. 🙂
I almost used a close-up of the face above the window and brick pattern for architecture LOL
Ah yes good idea! I have been struggling a bit with this theme. Well done!
Me too Betty… I took a walk down the street and some thoughts about lines. After I posted the blog I drove to the store and a remodeling crew was ripping out the cobalt blue tiles. Broken my heart as they were a really great photography focal point.
Oh Yes its really annoying when things like that happen, there is someone doing graffiti around the village on lots of my favourite shots. But cobalt tiles – how beautiful!
I am sad to hear they have been desecrating your favorite photo areas in the village by tagging 😦 I hope they put them back after the redesign of the frontage and awning. I did not see any graffiti but the Historic District has had a lot of tagging lately.
Dazzling photos. Keep up the great blogging work.
