Triple transit

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 11 June 2012 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

The line of lamp posts caught my eye at first. But the power of three charmed me when these birds crossed my lens to add a sense of movement.

This is the view as I look across Lake Ginninderra from the Belconnen Arts Centre on a calm and clear autumn day.

And the three posts add to the question of the meaning of all this. 3 for 3 is even
better, and 3 times the beauty we have !~

I immediately like the repeating pattern of the angular lamp posts. Then enjoyed it even more reading about the movement of the birds.
