Between the Lines

"A line is a dot that went for a walk." ~Paul Klee






"A curved line for beauty, a straight line for duty." ~Violet Linton





"The essence of drawing is the line exploring space." ~Andy Goldsworthy





"Our mind is capable of passing beyond the dividing line we have drawn for it. Beyond the pairs of opposites of which the world consists, other, new insights begin.” ~Hermann Hesse

I like the different variety of photos with lines forming nice patterns. Good observation. The quotations are interesting.

I love the pictures. The first one is my favourite because of ths striking colours.

Julie, Thanks for asking. Although the 3rd one does look like an allaudia, it's an ocotillo.

A lovely collection of lines. I really like the 4th one, even though I don't know what it is.

Hi Gaelyn, the 4th one is a close-up of a tortoise shell.
