Sunday Snaps: Vanishing Points

To create an illusion of depth in photography, you need perspective. One way to create perspective is by using vanishing points. A vanishing point, or point of convergence, is the spot on the horizon line where the other lines diminish. Sometimes it is visible, other times not.

To start, I’m sharing three of my photos from here in Newfoundland and Labrador. They show fall, winter and summer, in that order.

The following three photos were captured during my travels:

Driving through Tuscany
Shopping in Montreal
Champs-Elysees, Paris

“They dealt in transformations; they suggested an endless series of possibilities, extending like the reflections in two mirrors set facing one another, stretching on, replica after replica, to the vanishing point.” – Margaret Atwood

  1. Your photos brilliantly capture the feeling of vanishing points. I felt my eyes look into the distance and then focus on the foreground. You reminded me that it is a good thing to look up from the computer and look towards the horizon.
