Not sure if this qualifies. As soon as the weather improves, I'm going to head out with my camera and see what I can find.

I've tried bending and twisting my eyes but I don't see any converging lines here. By converging lines or vanishing point we mean that there are multiple straight lines or rows that if extended beyond the picture would meet at some point. That is the vanishing point. It doesn't really exist but the lines appear to take you there. Look at some of the other photos already submitted and you will see what I mean.

Some things to look for:
  • Stand in the middle of a straight road or street and look toward the "end"[/*]
  • Stand in the alley between a straight row of buildings and look toware the end.[/*]
  • Stand at the edge of a grove of trees and look between the row.[/*]
I think you get the idea. You've got two weeks. That should give you plenty of time to find some vanishing points.

I have added a couple examples with lines drawn in to illustrate the convergence idea in Selvin's challenge description at the top of the forum.
