    Textures, lines and angles are often part of our photos, I know. I thought it might be interesting to think about our photos with these things in mind, as opposed to subject matter. I hope everyone will add their own photos to this thread.

    I do quite a lot that's ONLY about textures, lines and angles. Here are a few. One even incorporates people...

    Okay, so BBW lured me over here (in the nicest possible way, of course :smile:) to this thread from mu-43.com. I guess if the E-P1 fits the serious compact genre then I'm game. This was the shot in question, taken with E-P1 and a Canon FD 24mm f2.8

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/55915417@N08/5279675021/" title="PB270705-PPR by Lucky.penguin, on Flickr">[​IMG]"PB270705-PPR" /></a>


    The textures, lines and angles theme is an interesting concept, so I found a few others that fit the bill taken with the same camera/lens.

    This one with an FD 85mm f1.8

    and an FD 55mm f1.2 (@f1.2 of course!)

    Nic, the first one makes me a bit dizzy (not a BAD thing, but it does cut down on the amount of time I can spend looking at it!), but I like the second and the last two a lot. You reminded me of a couple of others:

    I have zillions of these - could fill pages. So I'll stop now!

    Shot with my LX5 at around 4am this morning, handheld but pressed it very tightly to the corner of the fence.
    Focal length 5.1mm
    20 second exposure
    f/8.0
    ISO 200
    Converted to JPG via Silkypics
    Then filtered in Picasa with Focal B&W on the streetlight and warmify.

    Nice series! The last one, with the Budget truck, backlighting, and intersecting lines is the real winner of the bunch to me. Very nicely processed too!
