Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

Hello there, friends. Is everyone having a good day?

It’s photo challenge time again, and this week it comes from Tina at Travels and Trifles. Tina has challenged us to post photos with ‘leading lines.’ A compositional element of photography, “leading lines carry our eye through a photograph. They help to tell a story, to place emphasis, and to draw a connection between objects. They create a visual journey from one part of an image to another and can be helpful for creating depth as well.” – Tina

I really had a good time with this one. I don’t know if I got it right in every photo, but it definitely challenged me and allowed me to look at my photos in a different light. I hope you enjoy my offerings for this week!

Possibly my favorite photo that I took on our last trip. Β This shot was snapped on the grounds at Rait Castle, located near Inverness, Scotland.

A bright green field with a stone fence leading to a lone tree.

Photo taken (I think) on the B851, a funky, single-track road, near Farr, Scotland.  

A narrow single track road with trees on both sides.

This photo was rather unremarkable to me until I changed it to black and white. Β At the end of the road is Kildrummy Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

And now for something outside of Scotland…our cruise ship as it pulled into port in Puerto Rico.

A white fence, a sandy island road, and palm trees.

And last, Mr. C’s parents, hand-in-hand, walking back to our cruise ship after a day of exploring. Β Awww πŸ™‚
