Perspective

malmo2Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective. The first camera I photographed with was an 126 film Instamatic. The picture above is taken in a suburb to Malmö while there still was open land that had been plowed a few years before. The picture is taken around 1970 and it looks like it is in the countryside. I was quite fascinated at the time that it looked like a countryside picture and not like in a suburbian landscape. There is a street hidden behind the greenery in the foreground and this lack of perspective fools the eye.

The second photo is taken this week on Föreningsgatan in Malmö and the lines leading towards the horizon or the midpoint of the picture very clearly defines the perspective of the picture.
