Leading Lines

Recently, I’ve been making a conscious effort to use lines in my shots to draw the viewers eye into the image. Most of the time the shot is symmetrical with a small variation to one side to add interest. Below are five shots that I took last week at a cage aquaculture site on Manitoulin…

The Walls Are Closing In

This is my favourite photo taken in Kingston late last week. I didn’t think it fit in with the other post of Kingston City Hall  so it gets its own. The wide angle shot seems to bring the walls close together and lead your eye into the picture. We had just come outside from a…
