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

The last time I was in Kauai, I saw the most magnificent tree in Old Koloa Town on the island’s sunny south shore. Its canopy of branches spreads over a tiny red-paneled art gallery in a grand display that took my breath away. We sat on a bench while eating our shave ice and marveled at its presence, grateful for its shade.

I love the interplay of lines in this snapshot: the contrast between the loose, organic lines of the curvy and wiry branches in the top half of the frame and the straight, man-made lines of the building underneath.

This week, share a photo with a composition dominated by lines — hard or soft, straight or curvy, vertical or horizontal, or made in nature or as part of a cityscape. We look forward to seeing your interpretations!

  1. Beautiful, Cheri. I have fond memories of my time in Hawaii, mostly on Oahu, even though the precipitating cause was a quadruple bypass my step-father had. I loved the winds in Punalu’u where we stayed, and took drives by myself all around the island while my mother visited him.
