Behind the Lens - Linear Perspective

This series of photographs illustrates the visual device known as linear perspective. Linear perspective is the impression of depth given by converging parallel lines and changes of subject scale between foreground and background elements.

I did not have converging parallel lines to work with in this photograph but by angling my shot I created a change in scale of the subjects between foreground and background. This feeling of depth is only an illusion, but it is an important compositional factor in the success of this photograph.
