Assignment #4 – Lines (L)

This week’s assignment is about lines. While I did go on a new photo shoot to capture what the assignment embodies, I actually choose to post a series of pictures from a previous photo session. Hopefully my sis won’t get mad at me. Eeek. 🙂

These pictures were, however, taken with my new camera. And, when I took them, on a certain level I was thinking about lines as in a border between public and private. When you live in a city (and a small apartment/house) so much of your life happens in the public realm. The door or gate to your home marks the border/line between your public and private worlds. Really, I swear…

Then reflecting back on a more literally level, there are actually a lot of lines in each photo. Happy coincidences should get documented, right?!


f/5.6 – 1/100 sec. – ISO-200 – 18mm

There was something alluring about this apartment building. It’s right on the main drag when you’re walking to the weekly, outdoor Nachlat Binyamin artist’s market that is a popular destination for visitors in Tel Aviv, Israel. We’ve gone so many times at this point that it’s a challenge to find new gems. We found one though: fabric artist, Amnon Lipkin (Brand: Pashut). His designs are quirky and clever. Read more about his hand-sewn designs here.


f/8 – 1/200 sec. – ISO-200 – 18mm

If I had the chance to take this over this week, I probably would have tried to include more of the front fence.


f/4.5 – 1/60 sec. – ISO-320 – 20mm

I absolutely love the façade of this city home.  Weather-wise, I’m sure it’s fine that the front wall seems so thin, made up of only glass and metal. As a NYC/NJ city-dweller, something about it also makes me very uncomfortable and unsafe. It probably has to do with the fact I haven’t lived on ground level in over 20 years at this point. My comfort level or line, still likes my front door to face an indoor hallway.


f/5.6 – 1/100 sec. – ISO-320 – 22mm

What’s not to like about a bright red door, with many parallel and perpendicular straight and bent lines.
