Straight Lines - Thematic Photography

This week is the annual Kirkfest week in our village where a scarecrow competition was held last Saturday.

This gives me a photo opportunity the results of which I will share later. Walking round today it gave me the opportunity to look for straight lines too although the line I had to walk was anything but straight.

Before I left our garden the fence caught my eye.

Fence boards with vertical lines
Straight lines can be horizontal too.

Hedgerow and Overhead Lines

Farmyards have always attracted me, especially those with Dutch barns.

Even if the bales are not exactly straight
It's perhaps as well that the steps up to the local railway line are not readily accessible.

Lots of straight lines here
The gate to a local farm contains even more.

Knowles Farm
Even the road home had lines on it.

Who said, "The rolling English drunkard made the rolling English road?"

The lines look straight enough to me.

For more sets of lines check out those at Carmi's Thematic-Photographic-338.

Ah the lines might be straight but the roads often aren't.

Brilliant! Love the way you have found the lines everywhere. And that is some gate!

Nice collection of straight lines, even the long and winding road. Thanks for sharing.

Oh yes, the green, GREEN grass of home! Great photos, and I hope to see more of those scarecrow finds too! I just adore when that happens and folks share the photos, I wish we did that around here too, and not just on Halloween!

Maybe I need to start a scarecrow in the middle of summer thing here too!

Yes, Bob, our lives are filled with straight lines and we do not even see them sometime!...:)JP

I love how you find lines in places most folks would never look. At least not readily. You've inspired me to go on more walkabouts, for there's tons of magic lurking right under our noses if only we take the time to appreciate it. Thank you as always for the inspiration, Bob!

New theme is up. I think you'll have lots to share, as well :)
