Boundaries

This week, let’s explore the creative potential of limits, borders, and dividers of all types.

Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects — like the security rail seen below, separating ferry passengers from the icy waters of the Strait of Georgia. They’re there to stop us from doing or saying what we actually want to. But they also give structure to our actions and frame our movements. In photography, they help our eyes make sense of what we see and convey a sense of visual narrative. They constantly invite us to push against them.

This week, share your take on “boundaries” — please feel free to interpret the theme as literally (or not) as you see fit. I look forward to browsing through your photos!
