Dead-end alley in Frederick, Maryland.

Lines can lead you to the end…

…or at least away from where you are.

Leading lines draw the eye across the frame and are used as a compositional element in photography.  The apparent convergence gives a sense of distance and fools the mind by creating a third element-depth-in a two-dimensional medium.

I have always liked these particular walls because of the varying lines and textures and photograph them each chance I have.  Today was overcast and so there are no harsh highlights or very deep shadows-a gentle light that allowed for the various hues in the bricks, stones, and metal to step forward.

Take care.
