Looking for Lines
I have learned about the different types of line and what meaning each of them brings to a photograph. Zig-zag(busy,excitement and confusion), curved and circles(inviting,calm), straight(rigid,harsh,intense), thick(imposing) and thin(delicate). I have also learned how everywhere you look there are lines, lines are in everything and anything. I captured all of the line types in the photos I took. My greatest challenge was finding lines in other places than the most obvious ones that everyone was photographing. What I liked about the project was we could see how many lines really are around us in a place we are at daily. It was neat to see how looking up close at things allows you to notice line types and different patterns you didn't really think about before. If I were to do this project again I would try to find additional examples of line in places other than where I photographed.
34th Street Wall
I had a great experience at the 34th Street Wall. I really enjoyed how we each brought an object that was representative of us. I think the photographs with our own objects were more personal. I liked going to the Harn as well. However, I wish we had more time to explore and take pictures on our own or in groups. It was neat going back to the wall at a different time during the day and seeing the difference in lighting. Also, I liked getting to spray paint on the wall and take pictures by what we spray painted. I also liked getting ice cream at the end!
