"All that is gold does not glitter. Not all those who wander are lost."
In beginning photography we learned about the Elements of Photography and my favorite one was line. I remember our first assignment was to cut out pictures from magazines that used the elements. I looked through National Geographic and found a photograph of the back of a tiger.
Line is used so well here. All the lines are almost perfectly straight — the building in the back, the trees, the reflection. They work together to create this feeling of stability and peace.
Melancholia, Charles Corbet. c. 1910. Autochrome.
