Urban landscapes: Lines of brick, stone & glass


I don’t remember the name of this building in Calgary’s downtown; it’s older, not very tall and probably didn’t have a name. But I was intrigued by the converging lines and the one centre line that bisects the entire scene – yet still doesn’t cut the photo in half.

Photos like this, where it’s crucial to achieve straight lines and balance throughout the scene, are a good reason to use a tripod. I kept the bland white sky out of the picture so your eyes could concentrate on the lines and textures.
