I choose to take this picture of a point because I think the three balled light post really stand out and is a clear indication of a point. The reason I consider this as a point is because the balled light post was pretty small in the picture and going off of the definition of a point.”. A point marks a position in space. Graphically, however, a point takes form as a dot.”.
For my second picture of a point, I choose to take a picture of the Starbucks sign that contained three circles that resemble three dots. Right away I knew I could use this picture for one of my points pictures because the sign is a perfect representation of a point.
I have always loved what Pike’s Place has done with the flooring of the market. This is why I had to take a picture of the floor and use it as one of my line images. This picture holds multiple different lines and even the names on them are considered to be in a line. A line as stated in the reading is “A line is an infinite series of points. Graphically, lines exist in many weights; the thickness and texture as well as the path of the mark determine its visual presence.”. So in the context of my image it does hold every aspect of the meaning of a line.
For my second picture of a line, I choose to make it the top of the Starbucks sign. When thinking about my second line photograph I knew that I wanted to cater to the definition in the reading stating that “a line is the connection between two points, or it is the path of a moving point.”. I think this picture is a perfect example of this.
My first impression when looking at this image, was trying to use it for a line example. I really thought the wood pillars stood out and formed lines really well. But as I looked at it more I started to realize that it would be more effective as a plane, seeing the the sails make a plane. According to the reading and the definition of a plane it stats “A plane is a flat surface extending in height and width.”. This image that I took I believe is a perfect representation of the meaning of a plane.
For my second picture of a plane I choose to pick the red ground as presented in this photograph. This photo makes the ground appear to be one collective unit and of lines that seamlessly run together in making a plane. As quoted in the reading a plane can be “Ceilings, walls, floors, and windows are physical planes.”. From this definition alone you can see that this floor resembles a plane.
