Both good shots. I particularly like the way you get a sense of the bridge and it's geometric shapes in the second shot.

I like that first shot...a good representation of the straight and narrow!

The fence post in my "Wire" picture has grown a batch of lichens. I think they add a lot of interest to the photo. Thanks for asking!

The top photo is tops! It is harsh geometry, but the irregularity of the side trees intrude. Beautiful.

James said...

These are great! You really nailed the top one.

Barbara said...

Love those converging lines in the top shot - great images.

We had snow in plenty in London before Xmas, but Canada would be a beet fit for this one. Snow all went some weeks back, thank heavens.

Creative perspectives! Delightful tone variations! Especially love the diamond-shaped criss-crossing of the girders in the second photo!

Karen these are great shots and I really like the monochrome meme idea!
The black and white makes it seem even colder doesn't it ?
Joy : )
