Guiding lines are effective techniques to improve photography composition.

Application is not limited to flying a panda kite like this image.

For hiking in rough terrain, climbing ropes are used to assist hiker to a higher ground.

Using mobile camera is the most convenient as focusing lens can be placed directly nearest to the rope.

Or even mobile phone touching the ropes while capturing an image.

Doesn’t matter if you capture it while smartphone is in inverted position.

Image produced will still be an upright orientation.
