Lines Crossed

The sky is overcast in Milwaukee this morning. For some reason this bird and all the crisscrossed lines caught my eye when I stepped out onto our back porch with my cup of coffee to supervise our dog. She had just chased a chipmunk up our crabapple tree and was sitting patiently at the trunk watching it. She would sit there all day waiting that poor little critter out if left to her own devices. So we usually call a merciful halt to the standoff before too much time passes. Anyway, the bird and all the various powerlines caught my eye. I liked the balance between the utility pole and that bird on opposite sides of those long, sweeping dips of intersecting sets of parallel lines.

    I like all of the lines. They enclose spaces of various shapes. There is a kind of harmony if you can call it that, between the color of the overcast sky and the deep green trees. Then of course there is that one lonely bird. I love pictures like that with a solitary figure.
