Line play

Carrer Bergara

It’s funny, but recently I have been drawn to lines, and how they appear to play with light and shadow. So I thought I’d share some examples with you today – hope you like ‘em!

I spotted the tile lines (above) while I was taking photos of something very different. What drew me, was the way perspective was at play when I got closer to the wall, making the lines seem to join in the distance, when they are true parallels.

Below are a series of rubbish disposal units, set into a lined wall. I love the contrast of the metal slats with the inset piece and round lids.

Plaça Universitat

Above and below are different shots of the same crowd control barricades. The repetition of the vertical lines  on the image above fascinates me, as does the way the legs (below) interlock.

Carrer Pelai

Often, when you change the angle from which you are viewing an object, its whole appearance changes. This building above, for instance: what appears to be a checkerboard of glass and stone turns into a collection of zig zag lines when viewed just a couple of meters along the road (below). Pretty cool!

A bunch of lines – ‘dotted’ this time. I just love it.

And below, lines in four directions, surrounded by more lines, create a point of interest that just draws your eye to it. Don’t look at it for too long, it may have a dizzying effect!

More Barcelona goodness tomorrow! Have a great Wednesday!
