Abstracts anywhere . . .

Nothing like shooting at an antique car show to fill your frame with line, design, and color.

What I particularly like about this image is how there are all those horizontal lines repeating themselves in the upper section of the square.

For me, however, it's that one curving line that (a) contrasts with all the straight lines and (b) moves your eye down toward the bottom of the frame.

Without that little curve, your eye would tend to remain relatively static, flickering a bit left and right. With the curve, your eye flickers left/right and then, yee ha! Your eye swoops down the picture, only to come back up to the strong left/right elements.

Lather, rinse, repeat . . .
