52 Weeks - It's A Wrap
This was going to be a fun challenge where I could take Hermes to a bridge or a dirt road, or, or, or... but, when it snows and the wind blows at the same time there is just no way I can ask Hermes to go out in it. So, this week we're back indoors.
Leading lines was the challenge for this week. Leading lines in an image usually require space and a wide angle lens. The idea is to use lines to draw your viewer into the part of the image that you want them to focus on.
I had no idea what I was going to do to show leading lines indoors, and then this happened... Hermes had wrapped himself in the throw just like he always does, but this time he didn't quite make it underneath before turning circles to settle. I tip-toed to my camera and silently whispered over and over, please don't wake up, please don't wake up. I knew I wouldn't get a second chance at this one. He was completely worn out. Poor guy.
Setting up the shot at just the right angle showed wonderful leading lines. Not exactly the standard shot you would get with a bridge or a road, but I think it's kind of cool. Thanks for helping, Hermes! ;)

Hermes has got the right idea when it's cold outside!!

You had the same weather we did. I love the idea of these lines in your examples, and Hermes looks so snug, like a swaddled baby.

Great way to improvise under the circumstances. Hermes is adorable. I have the same problem with trying to take photos of my cats (sneaking up on cute poses without waking them up).

I so understand the sneaking away to get your camera and hoping they don’t wake up🙂. Great work Hermes on helping Mum out. They’re great, and unique leading lines!

Not your typical leading lines, but great examples.

Wow - that a great idea! Love how you saw this and make it work - I'm thinking the curl up in a blanket sounds nice - we are having rain - not cold though.
