Join us for this week’s #PPLeadingLines2 Instagram challenge! We challenge you to take us and the rest of the Passion Passport community on a visual journey. Using this week’s theme, experiment with framing to create leading lines that capture your viewer’s gaze and guides the eye towards your desired focal point.

Leading lines can be found in many places: both obvious and unexpected, natural and man-made. Whether it’s the urban canyons created by the sharp lines of city skyscrapers, the eroding cliffs and shorelines by the water’s edge, or the very sidewalk we walk on; the options are endless! Keep a close eye out, and you’ll be sure to notice the lines that capture your very own attention.

This week we’re joined by guest judges @nicanorgarcia@philipp_goetze, and @tonistadlr! Head to their captivating feeds for inspiration, and follow the instructions below for a chance to be featured on our Instagram feed:


  1. Post as many photos/videos relating to the theme as you like between Monday, August 29th and 11:59pm EST on Saturday, September 3rd;
  2. Mention @passionpassport and #PPLeadingLines2 in your caption (if in the comments, we may miss it);
  3. Include a brief write-up (3-5 sentences) in your caption telling us how your entry relates to the theme and why it’s personally significant to you (again, if in the comments, we may miss it); and
  4. Stay tuned for the winner and honorable mentions to be announced Sunday, September 4th on our Instagram feed based on guest judges’ scoring of Quality of Image, Quality of Caption, and Creativity/Interpretation of the Theme.

*NOTE: Entries must be posted or re-posted from a public account during the challenge period. You cannot simply ‘tag’ an older photo/video. Those posted from private accounts and/or posted outside of the challenge period will NOT be considered eligible.

Watching the early-morning sun rise over this city in the desert was a memorable experience on its own. As I arrived at the top of the world’s tallest building, the city slowly came alive in front of me. / @passionpassport #PPLeadingLines2
