By definition, landscape photography should be purely natural, but I prefer to add a human element, even if it is very small in the frame.
The Beatles‘ song came to my mind, and so I made this B&W photo to match the 70’s mood. This is my response to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Roadscapes.
The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I’ve seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to your door
~ “The Long and Winding Road” written by Paul McCartney
P.S. This may be one of my last posts for a while. I’m flying off to China for a work assignment and I think they are blocking WordPress (a.k.a. freedom of speech?). Therefore, I may not be able to blog or read your blogs. Expect to be back 3 months later.
KM 82 is the starting point of Inca Trail (3-day hike) to Machu Picchu. From here, it appears that everything converges to infinity. Discouraging, and yet exciting!
Willis Tower (still commonly referred to as Sears Tower) is an iconic skyscraper in Chicago.
A wet night in Taipei. I love the reflection on the ground, which somehow enhanced the convergence effect.
These are my interpretations of the theme Converge. Which do you like?
No landscape photo is complete without a main subject. Every photo needs a focal point to hold the viewer’s interest. In this case, it is a lone tree but it can be anything … for example, in my previous blog post, I have a canoe against a serene background.
The photographer also made use of 3 leading lines (the dividing line and the 2 slopes) to converge towards the main subject.
