Things In Rows

While looking through my photos I realized that I often take pictures of things in rows. I’m sure there is some deep psychological reason for this. Perhaps it is because I have a need for order, or that symmetry is visually satisfying, or maybe rows of things just beg to be photographed. I don’t know. Anyway, here are some of my pictures of things all lined up.

  1. Excellent pictures. You have a great eye for beautiful rows. I especially like the red tables in the not too perfect row, and the red benches, and the bubble gum, and the tights, and the trees. Just all of them.

  2. What a wonderful collection. An eclectic mix if ever there was, and I love the water image with all the pole remnants and the birds. Was this part of a pier or similar?

    Some more details would make the shots a bit more interesting – for me at any rate.

  3. These are really great photos, somehow visually satisfying. However, I’m pretty sure the Titanic sailed form the other side of the Atlantic. Looked it up – from Southampton. Maybe it’s the pier it would have sailed to.

  4. Whatever the source of your inspiration for these photos, i ADORE your collection of “things in rows”! I think my favorite may be the fishers’ carts, but they’re all wonderful.
