Lines by Dahlia
Be afraid, very afraid. My wife and I have apparently passed on our love of all things visual to our two eldest children. We bought Zach his first camera while we were on vacation, and he's been clicking away ever since. Dahlia, not wanting to be left out, has been clamoring for some shutter time of her own ever since.
So we started doing walkabouts: tours of the neighborhood where we simply shoot whatever occurs to us. On one walk with Dahlia, she spent more of her time looking down, trying to tease out the interesting scenes that we usually miss because we're busy looking forward. This is her perspective of parking lines, pavement and shadows. It's scary how much she thinks like me.
Your turn: Look down. What do you see?
