Your challenge this week is to photograph things in a row. 

This mean repeated shapes, objects or colours ordered in precise formations or close enough to precise.

Once you find your subject, look for ways to make it more interesting.  Look at different angles or viewpoints.  Breaking or interrupting the row or pattern can strengthen the overall image dramatically.  Picture yourself at the green grocers, all those beautiful green apples lined up in perfect order, then woops, one red apple.  The uniformity of the pattern is interrupted adding a new dimension to your photo, making it more pleasing to the eye.

Geometric designs of similar shape and size such as office blocks or apartments with all their rows of windows work well; rows of grapevines in a vineyard, or rows of trees in an orchard or plantation.  Diagonal lines, zebra crossings etc. can make an interesting picture.  Be creative.

A few other ideas that my help to get you thinking:

A line up of yellow taxis with a white one to break up the mix

Theatre or stadium seats

A single row of people crossing the road

Lavender fields

A convoy

Eggs in a carton and one broken

Books in a library

Now it’s time to come up with your own concept of things in a row. Go and use your imagination, consider composition and lighting, and show us your amazing, creative pictures.  Remember to enjoy yourself and have fun this week.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
