Draw Bridge in Black and White by Mariano57

Draw Bridge in Black and White by 

I love lines. They unconciously pull your attention. Here a draw bridge slowly closing in blends with the shore walk and boats into two irresistible lines that draws your eyes to the left, desperately searching for a figure, a person, anything warm blooded in the cold clean concrete of the metropolis.

Fine art Studio Photographer and Physician, I am a native of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
My main interests are studio fine art figure work and HDR photography, although I love to experiment with Photoshop creations from time to time.
The greatest reward I get from this art is to be able to stir a memory, an emotion, a smile. In the end, touch a total stranger and connect.

    …and we find him on the walk!
    Yes, I love lines, too, and so I was attracted to this from the small feature image in your portfolio. The heavy draw bridge line jutting from the left gives a feeling of abstraction to the whole (abstract lines), because of the many delicate architectural lines of the buildings. Collectively, the mass of these structures balances the weight of the dark bridge. Then there are the violin bow lines of the sailboat masts, which begin to tug at the heart, as we imagine the boats rocking and creaking and playing this music together in the wind. And the bow of the prominent boat points us toward the curve of the plaza, where we spot a person— the very person we now imagine ourself to be, even just for this moment.

  • Thank you for such a wonderful comment!!! :-)
