Lines and Perspective

This farm was very much a part of my life.  It belonged to my great Uncle Bernard "Ben" Rusch.

SnowWausau-1Way back when I was a student at Trinity Lutheran in Wausau, John Kupsky had us do an assignment in his Art Class to draw perspective.  Simple perspective means lines converging to a point on the horizon.  ERailroad tracks easily lend themselves to this as the two rail tracks converge on each other.

This is a spur line and  I am facing south from Bridge Street just east of Walgreen ‘s on Wausau’s west side.  These tracks feed into the Graphics Plus packaging plant just to the north of Bridge Street.

Even the lines of the snow fence form a degree of perspective using parallel lines.

Some of these images are going to be in the black and white category on CaptureWisconsin.com.   So log on to that  site.  There is a link to it on this blog site.  Just get on it and vote!
