Weekly Photo Challenge: Lines


This line moves us from one place to another.

Lines can move us forward, hold us back, make us wait, and separate us.  Lines can be drawn, can be broken, can be memorized, and can be crossed.

Here in Asia, we don’t like lines.  We work in groups.  You might say that we don’t like to think linear.


Yet, lines can be important.  This line lets me see where I’m going and where I’ve been.  It takes me places.  If I let it, this line can deliver me to a whole new world.


These vegetables are waiting in a line for a buyer.

Some lines remind us that we have a responsibility to ourselves.  Eating between these lines can keep us healthy and fit.


“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” Lucille Ball


It takes a specialist to maintain these lines.

Some lines bring harmony.  These lines, tightened just so, allow us to hear beautiful music.  A bit too tight or too loose changes the whole feeling of the concert.


“They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.”  Charlie Parker


Lines in these two buildings identify people with a place of business.

It interests me that being associated with one of these lines of work can give a person a sense of identity.  From a distance, we can barely even see the individual windows–only the lines.  From the inside, though, things said and done are of utmost importance.


What lines do you face daily?

“There is a thin line that separates laughter and pain, comedy and tragedy, humor and hurt.” Erma Bombeck

  1. Really interesting set of photos! Great to meet you via the Weekly Photo Challenge

    Are your daily pictures part of a 365 photo challenge? I have a separate posterous for mine & was wondering about combining them>

    • I’m not really a photographer, just snap shots here and there. I do the WordPress Postaday Challenge. This has been a fun year and I’ve enjoyed meeting nice people like you. I see that you are a teacher too!

  2. Reading between the lines- occupational hazard for English teachers and worried mothers.

    Seriously, this is an excellent entry- simple yet profound, creative and intriguing.

    • Good for you for figuring it out! I’m quite new to posting. This is my first year, but I’m having so much fun with it! Looking forward to getting to know you better through your posts too!
