First Blush: Setting her sights on speed lines

Fence at Stanford practice golf course

In the days when she was a magazine editor, the female Dawn Jogger remembers discussions about “speed lines.” She recalls it had something to do with layouts – particularly “double trucks” (those being two page layouts to the uninitiated). She realizes she’s gotten kind of obsessed with the visual speed lines that are apparent thanks to  the structure and fence along the Stanford practice golf course.  She keeps photographing them. The fence and wires are parallel at one juncture but then the fence becomes parallel to the structure. Together they form lines. Ok, so it’s more interesting to see in real time when the morning light is just so. Plus the male DG (gimpy and grumpy) just informed her that in the newspaper world there were no “speed lines,” only “vanishing points.”
