After many days of rain the weather had temporarily cleared and I had to get out of the house. I did not have any preconceived ideas or plans about what to shoot.
To my surprise, and delight, I found my subject within a few yards of the back door. Trying to observe my environment afresh I also looked down, at what was under my feet, and there they were: lines. The multitude of lines painted on the road, curves created by the curb stones, lines created by different kinds of tarmac, shapes created by the drying of the surface. After that first shot I knew that there was a good series of pictures to be made.
