Flickr Friday: Down the Tracks

Down the Tracks, originally uploaded by andertho.

It’s the time of the week for Flickr Friday! This week I chose a photo by Andertho and it’s breathtaking.

One of the things that make a photo worth staring at is symmetry and depth, this photo has both. You are given the illusion that the tracks go straight for miles on end. They lead down the center of the photo and force your eyes to follow the lines. The image is so still and peaceful, and then your eyes run into the movement of the birds. Is there a train coming ahead? One from behind? Why is this person standing on the train tracks? So many questions are left unanswered and that’s what makes it breathtaking.
