Lines


The theme for City Daily Photo Blogs this month is Lines.

It is a wide theme and open to lots of interpretation. I could have shown you railway lines, double yellow lines, telephone lines, queues of various kinds or done some esoteric or artistic representation.

What I have chosen to show you is the electric cables and supports for the railway line passing under the cross-platform bridge at Broadbottom Station.

I've earlier posted a glimpse of the station and intend showing you more at a later date.

the world is so linear these days, we can't avoid seeing lines everywhere

I like how you chose to show the details of these electrical things. Mine's related to railway too.

Several lines for the price of one! Great shot for theme day.

Jules said...

A plethera of contrasting lines - good catch Gerald!!!

Bergson said...

great shot
Great idea for the theme!

I didn't even see the electrical lines I was concentrating on the lines on the footbridge. A double dose for me then. I expect railways to feature heavy, but I also think this will be a good theme day.

Kate said...

It's all very linear!! I've been on self-imposed sabbatical, but have returned for theme day. Come visit!

Harry Makertia said...

Today's theme is tricky. I like the way you show your interpretation of "lines". Great idea.

Jilly said...

Lines everywhere here. On the bridge too. Lovely old bridge.

Deslilas said...

"Faire des lignes" writing several lines, ten, fifty or more with the same sentence was a punition for child in the old days.
Nowadays it's a pleasure with your blog.

Nice photo.
Mine is also electric cables for railways with Raghuleela Mall & International Infotech Park in the background.
Thankyou forryourvisit.

Happy Theme Day!

Rose said...

Isn't it amazing how when you start looking you see lines everywhere?
I remember a couple of month ago someone saying that lines were too much of a boring subject! Little did they know!

jill said...

I love your shot, lines this way, lines that way. I didn't get my act together soon enough to participate this month.

Knoxville Girl said...

The cross-hatch lines on the bridge are what got my attention. Then I saw the other lines on your shot. Very good theme day choice.

Ming said...

Great lines there. I wanted to post railways lines but did not have a chance to take nice pics.

Thanks for visiting Phoenix Daily Photo and for the tip on the link problem I'm having. I did edit that link and fix it. I saw there was an additional quote mark, but what I can't understand is that the address was "blogger.com" and not what I had originally typed. I can't figure out why that "blogger.com" keeps getting inserted.

Gerald -
Lots of lines alright, nice to see a similar electric train shot!

Tanya said...

Very nice, I love your take on lines! Happy Theme Day :)

Barbara Rahal said...

wow the world went crazy with lines, very nice one here!!!

Kuanyin Moi said...

Well, our 'lines' today are somewhat similar. Happy Theme Day!

Jackie said...

Yes - lots for the price of one! I guess you can't avoid seeing lines wherever you look.

Thanks for your comment - come back tomorrow to see if you won! :)

bitingmidge said...

At first I thought it was a fabulous achievement getting those lines in frame parallel with the trees.

They're "lined" up!

Then I woke up to myself and realised that all trees planted beside railway lines are going to be parallel!

Full marks for the composition!

What an electrifying post! Pun intended :)

Ruby said...

I like this idea of theme day and didn't find out about it till it was too late - but coincidentally my post has lines on it! Like the way you have lots of lines on yours!

Small City Scenes said...

Excellent photo for the theme. We do live in a linear world if we would look 'round us. Pun intended. MB

PJ said...

Nice photo for lines theme day! I just love your blog, btw!

Jim said...

We have electric trains in Dallas.....I think.....its been a while since I paid attention, either that or I am getting old. Dang it now I am going to have to find out.

Tash said...

XXXXXXXXXXXXXX-elent choice :)
REally well done Gerald!

Greg said...

What a great choice of subject! I know i would have looked down at the rails and completely missed the lines above

mirage2g said...

Aside from train tracks, electrical wires are oft to this theme too! Happy Theme day!

Buck said...

I came this close to shooting a rail line, but I figured many people would do that. I like your angle on rail lines; it's both local and creative. Kudos!
