Get Some Perspective

November 20, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Here are forgotten railroad tracks that were once busy with cars loaded with product.

As I stood there staring down the tracks nothing in the scene really stood out to be photographed. It was a rainy day and what initially drew my attention was the saturated colors. I walked around a bit, left and then right. Then it made complete sense. I knew how I would make the photograph. Dah! I laid down on my stomach and there they were, my leading lines.

It pays off to walk around, get high, get low and survey all perspectives before just snapping away. I’m happy with the result.

You might think the photos taken in a remote rural area. Nope. I was driving in an industrial area in Irvine, CA.
