Compliments and Lines

A High on Lines
June 2007

My iTunes: Can't Stop by Red Hot Chili Peppers

In my post from June 19th called Satisfying My Habit, I shared with you an image of lines and reflections. I had snapped the shot as I was standing in a common area under a building in the city. Some of the most beautiful images I have captured have been after I have looked up. I know all of you know that fact. The above image is standing just outside that same building. I think it is just as cool as the first one.

I was nominated for a blogger award by my friend Julie. You can check out her photoblog called The Compulsive Worrier by clicking here. She nominated me for the "Rockin' Girl Blogger" award. I am not sure what it exactly means other than I LOVE the title....SO I ACCEPT! Here is the nice paragraph she wrote about me on her blog...

Anna is an American photographer living with her family in London - she has a fantastic eye for an unusual angle and she has taught me to always look up in case I miss something great. I never fail to feel better after a visit to her blog; Anna is one of those people who just inspire you and enrich your life. It's not just her photos, it's what she says and the way she says it. I'm so enjoying seeing my own country through her eyes.


Wow! Thanks Julie...it was so nice what you wrote. Your country is beautiful and I am thrilled you are seeing your country through my eyes (or lens)...it is a pleasure for me to share what I see day to day. In the next few days, I will nominate my favorite girlie bloggers as well. This is going to be hard!

Take care everyone!

It pays to look up!

Congratulations on your award! You seem to always be rockin' when you're bloggin', so I guess it fits you well!

Congratulations! I love those looking up images.

I like this one. I never figured out the other reflection picture looking up. My wife and I both tried to, but still couldn't tell where one building began and where it ended.

Maybe that was the point.

Congratulations! You rock Anna, next step is a book. Have you read Laughter and Latte - Joyful inspiration for women, I imagine you writing a book like that, with short chapters filled with your thoughts. Take care!

As one who has never shied away from the perspective shot - I think I was born with the term "vanishing point" burned into my brain - I absolutely love this shot.

The hint of flare makes it that much stronger. Congrats on the nom, Anna. Her words about you are so, so true.

Ash said...

srp said...

Wow! These lines are doing a number on my eyes... it's amazing. I know this is a building but when I really stare at it and then let the eyes relax I see tiny little dots in long rows! Wild!

Elaine said...

Wonderful lines!

Lori said...
