Sunday Stills Challenge - Lines

This week's Sunday Stills Challenge was lines. It was an interesting challenge for me to focus on lines and get an interesting shot that I liked. It was also difficult for me this week since the sun never really came out so my shots outside look a little dreary. I did end up getting a couple that I liked, but I also pulled a couple from my archives.

This is the side of my barn. Definately lots of lines, but not so interesting.


These are the stairs that lead up to the barn loft. I think they are beautiful, ya know, for stairs. Not terribly photogenic though. And please try to ignore all the dirt, leaves and cobwebs. It's been a long winter.



I pulled this pic from my archives. It was a beatiful sunny morning and I had to go outside and take lots of pics. There are lots of lines with the deck, railing, window, shadows, etc. so I figured I'd throw it in.



This is another one I pulled from the archives. I was outside taking lots of pictures of the snow, which I posted here and Cheyanne was helping me, as usual. I think she decided she was done with the cold because she ended up sitting on the deck watching me. I think it's cute the way she is just peeking thru the rails at me and definately has a lot of lines in it. It was taken with my old camera so the quality isn't quite as good, but I still like the composition of it.

I like the stair image, for the lines of the stairs themselves and the walls.

I love the stair picture and I would really worry if the stairs were free of leaves and dirt it is a barn after all:)

Dog jail, good shot. I like the sun and the shadows along with the barn lines.

The leaves and webs would be a missed part of the shot. Glad you left them.
