When I read the challenge for March – interesting perspective – I wasn’t really sure what direction I wanted to go with it. My first inclination was shooting one scene or story from many angles and levels but I have recently done a similar project so I knew I wanted a different approach. I remembered a lesson on perspective from middle school art class. I remember learning about vanishing points and converging lines. We drew city blocks and the furthest buildings were smallest showing perspective and giving the drawing dimensionality. That is when I decided to combine my love of lines with this perspective project. Lucky for me we were headed to NYC and Connecticut for spring break. All photos were taken on my phone. And the last one is just for fun. No one was in the mood for me to perfect my “forced” perspective shot. Next time I would make sure they were in a clearing and in the mood for my games.
