Well, the only photos I've taken since last week's post are from the high school winter retreat I went on over the weekend. (Read more about our retreat here if you'd like to.) I thought this image feature was fitting since we were talking about "leading lines" in photo club last month, as well.

The cables on this giant swing, along with the posts and the riders' legs make some great "lines" that lead your eye through this composition. I thought it looked more stunning as a black and white image to crank up that contrast. I like the energy & motion captured in the shot. Hope you enjoy it, too :)
