"Powerlines, Beijing, China"
By Paige Parsons
One of the great things about photography is that it can bring our attention to design and form in ways we have not noticed before. This is the case in Paige Parsons' second-place "Power Lines, Beijing, China" image. Though the subject matter may be just an ordinary power structure in China, in Parsons' photo, it becomes a study of converging lines, shapes and symmetry. The image asks us to appreciate the artistic design of otherwise ordinary objects and invites us to study other objects with such detail.
