    Realmente impressionante os padrões invulgares do portão retratado pelo Fabrício. Para além da das formas arredondadas das linhas que o compõem, impressionou-me também a forma de conexão entre as linhas. São ambos os elementos que decidi usar na minha foto. Para além das linhas de comboio serpenteantes, que atraem de imediato o olhar, também os cabos eléctricos suspensos por cima das linhas são suportados pelo mesmo tipo de conecção que as linhas do portão. Nesta imagem é difícil de perceber, mas irei voltar ao local para tirar uma foto de pormenor, que colocarei aqui, para ilustrar a enorme coincidência.

      Como prometido, aqui fica a foto da conexão dos cabos electricos.

  • This is unarguably one of my favourite images from Ricardo so far in this project. This is partially linked to the fact that he left his nature’s approach for a more urban scene that I tend to prefer, but that’s only a small part of it.

    One is more than accustomed to see straight convergence lines but here they are curved; they make you follow their dance until they disappear in the distance like a long snake serpenting away.

    I love the composition too. One of the details I really find precious is that the leftmost rail starts sharp at the bottom left corner. I love lines that start in corners of the image. It’s like a statement: here, in this corner, be beginnings! The second compositional aspect I find nothing short of impressive is that the last curve gets so close to the right edge and, without touching it, turns left to finally throw itself out of the image at the top edge of the frame. This, together with the fact that the train tracks are occupying 99% of the width of the image make this a very dynamic image.

    Finally, to make sure you don’t get bored from looking at all those “parallel” repeated curves, the straight lines of the power cables and their suspension system comes to the rescue to give the image that extra layer of visual diversity. I have been looking for a few days to this image and cannot get bored.

    And all this while, in my opinion, linking really well with my previous photograph.

    And now what am I going to pick on for my next image? I really do not know yet as I am still enjoying the image; I think you will have to wait until it is done. But one thing is sure, it will be difficult to match Ricardo’s fantastic photograph.
