Welcome to Collective Shoot #616
~LINES~

30 August—5 September, 2018

Where you post pictures taken between Thursday (30/08) starting at 12:00AM (your time zone) running thru Midnight of the following Wednesday (05/09) (your time zone)

I’m taking a slightly different approach to introducing the subject this week.

I’ve just finished reading Terry Tempest William’s new book, The Hour of Land; A personal topography of America’s National Parks. The book is a collection of essays that’s a personal journey and a contemplation on the purpose and relevance of national parks in the 21st century. In the chapter on Theodore Roosevelt NP in North Dakota, she writes,

“I thought about the lines—the lines we draw, the lines we write; the lines we cross, the lines we cross out. An actor’s lines, deadlines, hemlines, borderlines—lines drawn in the sand; lines we never forget, the lines we leave behind. A circle is a line touching.” (p. 66)

So give us your best attempts at interpreting LINES, the most simple of geometric shapes, yet so powerful and useful. Here are a few (well, more than a few) from my archives to get things started:

1 "Contour" lines (lentil harvest on the Palouse)

And I DO recommend the book.

Ron, the powerline shot is so clean, and for a simple shot it sure has a range of tones. And there is the line of hills in the background!
Eyebrow line is so creative!

Thanks Nick. Just remembered the second shot was later in the day, when a small flock of these birds invaded the garden. I think they were wood warblers but no doubt someone will give me the right LINE.

Anyone who followed my thread about upgrading my stereo speakers knows how obsessed I am with my classical music compact discs. This is about half of my collection, which I expect to fill out considerably more in the next year or two. The collection makes lots of lines!

I was thinking about all the lines from my DVDs and BR discs. Good idea Mike!
