After all that architectural and designer gorgeousness of this week’s posts, I was a little unsure as to what to share with you today, but I finally decided on a series of images of lines, which I hope you will like. Here goes… a post that is stripey!
Our environment, especially if you live in a city, is made up of lots of lines, but we often don’t see them, as we have become so accustomed to them. But if you look around you, I’m sure you’ll spot quite a few. I did some line spotting recently and found some fun examples for you, starting with a fenced wall on Carrer Ramon Turrò and some classical columns on Carrer Balmes.
To be honest, fences are the most likely to be obviously linear, as you can see from these two, on Carrer Wellington and Carrer Montalegre.
But what about bicycle racks or stairs? Pretty linear too, wouldn’t you agree? What about the lines created by bicycle tires, alongside the rack – had you spotted those? And the stripey drain covers alongside the staircase?
When various sets of lines appear together within a frame, a form of tension is created, which I find very interesting and enjoy looking at. There are heaps of lines at play on Passeig del Taulat, but also on the sand of Platja de la Barceloneta. Who would’ve thought you’d see lines there too!
Aah the image of the beach has put me in a weekend frame of mind, so I think I’ll be off to enjoy myself. Not to worry though, for I’ll be back on Monday with more Barcelona loveliness to share with you. Have a great weekend!
