Imaginary Lines

Hey Mr Bartender

This was one of those very rare photo moments I had – where subjects were aligned ideally. A street photographer’s dream scenario. Red ashtrays and a bartender wearing a red shirt… what more could I ask for? But what’s more interesting, I feel, is how an imaginary line is created by the ashtrays which leads up to Mr Bartender. It is a perceived line caused by placement of red subjects. Our eyes detect the pattern and our brain processed that margin. Psychology. There are many such imaginary lines around us. I don’t know how they get there but I do know that they have to first go through our minds. Be careful how we perceive them. There are lines that separate and there are those that bind. We decide. Here’s to a better world. Bless. 🙂
