The Judges - Living Leading Lines

How easily people fall into patterns. You only need to lean against a wall and watch it happen. Like molecules aligning into crystals, humans form queues, circles, and rows of fixed faces with an unconscious habit as reliable as the sun’s rising.

As a photographer, I enjoy seeing these things take shape. This row of shoppers examining wares reminded me of a row of judges deciding a case. You could draw an almost ruler-straight line from head to head as they solemnly make their choices. Combine that with high-contrast b&w processing and the patterns become almost hypnotic.

Freelance photographer and ponderer of the unusual. I welcome the presence of mystery and the unknown. Wonder is not absent from the universe, and there is still room for the child in those who haven't yet allowed their hearts to wither to dust.
