Thematic Photographic 65: "Perspective" v.1.0 - Just Like They Taught Us In Drafting Class


"Perspective View"

This week Thematic Photographic attempts to put things in "Perspective". When I heard this, the first thing that came to mind was a blast from the past. Way back in high school I decided to take Engineering Drafting I my senior year. I was good for taking electives like that. I took Everything I. Never Anything II. Okay, Spanish II, but other than that I never took the second of any series fo electives. I figured I was exploring, expanding, getting the most well-rounded education public high school could offer me. My parents probably figured I just didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up. They were probably right. So was I. I digress.

Perspective drawing was one of the techniques we learned in said Drafting class, and it looked a lot like this. Only in pencil. And without the vegetation.

I'm such a dork. I love perspective drawing. I've been known to identify my vanishing point and just start sketching in a three-dimensional image. Not that I am artistic at all... I just make it technically correct. It's applied geometry, don'chaknow.

LOL! I had a bit MORE experience than that in the drafting department... and a waaaaaaaaay lot more in the reading of blueprints! 4 years of sheet metal apprenticeship, followed by several years as a draftsman! (woman) I really enjoyed it - but gave it all up to be a MOM. From MY perspective that was the more important job!

I like your view of that railing! :)

Stunningly captured. Your parents were wrong: you clearly knew what you wanted to be when you grew up! Look how it all turned out!
