Week 4 - Leading Lines
This week's theme is 'Leading Lines'. I like those. As you can see, for me, leading lines tend toward patterns. This week I used my iPhone to take this one. The only places I was this week was work, meeting rooms and classrooms, which for me are all the same. So, when I was able to run an errand on Saturday morning I saw these as I grabbed my cart. The red caught my attention and I saw the lines. I whipped out my iPhone and snapped the shot. My camera was in my purse, but that would have taken time. You know what it is like, take it off your shoulder, find the camera, take it out of the case, put the case back... Because I snapped it when I did, I caught the happer shopper at the end of the leading lines.
My old iPhone 3G doesn't have the large mega pixel that the new one has. My first photography teacher always said, "It's not the equipment. The photography is always taken six inches behind the lens." I have always remembered that. The shot is in your mind. The photographer has to bring it out through the tools he or she has. Thanks Mr. Jones, who I believe is still teaching at SMC.
