V is for vanishing point #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z in April Challenge 2019 I have picked some words, which are connected with physical space.

V is for vanishing point – a term
From drawing in perspective.
It helps us see a 2D picture as if it were
In 3D. Construction lines are elective.

I remember an art lesson, when we considered the built-up area around our school. We had to think about a long straight street and the way the road and the buildings in the distance seemed to converge to a point – the vanishing point.

Where I live now, because of hills and winding roads, it is quite difficult to find a similar view. The photo I have chosen for this post is one I took, because of the reflections. It does demonstrate the way that parallel lines appear to converge in the distance. In this case they are not long enough to reach the vanishing point.

There are accounts in the Bible of characters vanishing. Examples include Jesus after he had been crucified and had risen from the dead, an angel after rescuing Peter, Philip after he had baptised the Ethiopian official. All these stories are in the Acts of the Apostles, which reads like a very exciting adventure story.
