for dinner

As linear foods go, I make a mean grilled eggplant lasagna.  I don’t usually fall for the layered foods like 7-layer dips and trifles, but lasagna is the exception.  Most people are replacing the meat when they use eggplant in lasagna, I’m really replacing the noodles.  While I can find wheat-less pasta of most types, lasagna noodles have eluded me.  So, eggplant makes a gorgeous replacement.  I make it in a glass plan just to get the composition perfect.  Ridiculous.  This next Call is a far better use of a line obsession.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Darkroom Gallery (Essex Junction, VT) for Lines. They always have a low entry fee ($24) & a great juror.  And the theme leaves lots of room for interpretation. Take a look

Lines are powerful compositional elements that control the way eyes move through an image. The effect that lines have on an image varies. Horizontal lines convey a sense of width, stability, calm, lazy, security, relaxation, constancy and timelessness. Whereas vertical lines convey a sense of strength, height, integrity, solidity, dominance, power, peace & tranquility, substance or permanence.  This Call is for images that utilize lines in innovative and dynamic ways. — from
