Challenge of the month, October 2020: Vanishing Points
Vanishing point: the point at which receding parallel lines viewed in perspective appear to converge.
This month’s theme was inspired by this striking photo from Suzanne’s latest post:
I especially like this example because it shows both horizontal and vertical convergence. There are a couple of other examples below. Note that the lines don’t actually have to converge to qualify for submission. Just include enough depth of field so that you can see the effect and let your mind’s eye follow it through to the end.
Extra credit if you place your bike at the vanishing point, but it’s recommended that you lock it up first before leaving it there to take your photo. No need to lock up your riding partner though if he or she is the subject.

You mean October?? I know it is hard to believe, but we are entering into October ;’-0
Yes, I know that it’s jumping the gun a bit, but we’re stuck indoors waiting out some thunderstorms. People have probably had their fill of arches by now anyway.
I edited the title, replacing “September” with “October.”
Wait a second! You can’t do that. I just posted something for Scott’s “Final-Third-of-September” Challenge. I think that’s what he intended it to be.
Wait, what month is this? What was the “first-third-of-the-month” Challenge? What was the “middle-third-of-the-month” Challenge? I gotta go find a calendar. Meanwhile, I’ll let Scott re-adjust the title as needed.
My watch I got at Dollar General (so you KNOW its a good one) indicates the month as . . . . .
Wait, what month is it???
Thanks, Scott, for doing my phto the honor as an example!
Seems the months’ boundaries are melting and they just gradually transition, like Septober, Ocvember, Denovjan… And so we slide gradually from one challenge to the next. No challenge can be too early or too late.
Sounds like an opportunity for posts with merged challenges. Arches and vanishing points. Arches arching over vanishing points?
Which, of course, was exactly what I was trying to nudge you all toward. I was hoping someone would figure it out. Nice!
