LINES: The Daily Post Photo Challenge, 25 April 2018

Self almost forgot it was Wednesday! She was so busy tweeting and reading The Amber Spyglass and being confused by life, such as why her library copy of the book was missing 37 pages. She’d never have noticed if it weren’t for the kind child who inserted an index card warning the reader that 38 pages were missing. Since the book itself doesn’t seem to have been mangled, this seems to be entirely the fault of the publisher: RANDOM HOUSE. Anyhoo, she might have realized eventually, since p. 206 is a page with Mrs. Coulter, and on p. 239 Mrs. Coulter is not in evidence. But, hard to say.

Now to LINES.

  • As you look through your lens this week, pay attention to LINES.

— Cheri Lucas Rowlands, The Daily Post

Oh how fabulous! Self loves making her photographs into some kind of abstract representation of something totally different. That’s easy to do if you look at everything in terms of lines. Such, as her unit in the Mendocino Art Center, which is pretty empty so you can clearly see the rectangular repetitions of shelves, desk, doorway, etc.

And then, the lines the blinds make across the page she is reading:

And, finally, the lines of this aloe vera plant she saw (it was gigantic) in the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens:

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

    Love the shadow lines across the book!

    I liked those, too! I just noticed them one afternoon. I just discovered the world of His Dark Materials, so the shadows and the book gave me a kind of elusive feeling . . .

    Beautiful shot of the lines across the pages of the book.

      Thank you! It was just exactly as I saw it: I was holding the book, reading by a window. The shadows fell across the page . . . maybe I was right to capture that moment.

        The best ones are usually those not chased and enjoyed through life itself.
