Shape and Space

If you’ve ever driven a companion (or yourself) crazy by pacing back and forth and all around to get the best camera or easel angle for a landscape, you’ll appreciate this exercise I found about shape and space.

Here’s the idea: Imagine traveling in a large circle and taking four photographs along the way. After developing the photos, you get them out of order. Could you put them back in sequence on the basis of the spatial relationship of the structures you had passed?

Okay, now that you have the idea, check out “I Took a Trip on a Train” and see how you do.
