This is becoming a common theme for me – I am becoming more aware of lines and curves and often see them in airports as I am pacing the concourses trying to burn calories before my flight. Several chapters in David DuChemin’s Visual Toolbox, involve looking at lines and playing with their effect on an image.
I had an opportunity to spend a “delightful” two hours in Dulles airport because of a delayed flight. I found the old architecture to be fascinating in terms of the lines and curves. I wonder how many other people notice…… The last two images are the top of a garden gazebo.
In the images below I played with zooming to create urban abstracts, as well as tilting my camera off-axis (which is great for me because I can never seem to get the horizon line straight). During processing, I found that taking a “panoramic slice” allowed me to focus in on the most interesting part of the lines.
Love these images. Good seeing. The blue panoramic is my favorite. Did you encounter any obstacles photographing in an airport due to security concerns?
Hi Letti – its great to see you again! So far no one has approached me in the airports. Peter and i were approached by Disneyland security once when we were trying to photograph a roller coaster overhead (we had been there about 10-15 minutes)….I keep waiting though to get approached by security….
great pics! thanks for the useful info. Would enjoy you checking my blog at http://winecoastersblog.wordpress.com. thanks
