Parallel lines and a road to somewhere
Avenues of trees, Corinthian columns, monoliths. We love 'em.
But why? What is it about the engineering of the human mind that loves not only the concept of straight lines, but parallel lines, and preferably with a path down the middle?
This one leads to the Governor General's residence, and is especially impressive. But why? Why does it feel so impressive?
And - come to think of it - why am I so obsessed with photographing trees?
