Photo Blogging Challenge (August 2015): Rule of thirds
It’s that time of the month, isn’t it?
I’m not sure about all of you, but this theme really gave me fits. I am not sure why as it was one I was looking forward to doing.
It might be because I tend to break most photography “rules.” It could also be because I was traveling a bit this month and when I was taking photos, I didn’t think “rule of thirds!”
Either way, I ended up with five that I like.
I know I am really interested in seeing what everybody else came up with for this theme!
On another note, the fall is coming up and I’m hoping we can get the participation up in the group again. It was going well for a while, then it kind of slowed. Is it the themes? Something else? If you all have any ideas for themes, please shoot me an e-mail and I can add the themes to ones I am considering for the future!
Anyway, back to the rule of thirds. My five are below!
1. King of the jungle
This is an interpretation of the rule, as I am using the lion’s head as the part that counts. Yes, his body is across most of the image, but you get the idea. This was from the Pittsburgh Zoo.
2. Here fishy fishy …
During the trip to Seattle, I had the chance to visit Pike Market. And, the famous fish tossing was one of those things I got to see. This is the one guy making a catch as it came from the right.
This summer has been a season of baseball for me. I’ve been to more than 25 games in 22 (professional) different stadiums. It’s been a hell of a lot of fun. So I kind of set this photo up as part of it. I might make this my computer wallpaper!
4. Gone fishing
A lot of our streams and rivers in our area have public access areas to fish.
5. Road of caution
Also in my area are many roads like this — seasonal access. The issue is that many of them may not get worked on in the winter, but they also aren’t really worked on in the other months. This road wouldn’t be fun to travel on in most vehicles!
OK, this isn’t the rule of thirds … but far be it from me to not include a shot of Cameron for my monthly post! This was at a family dinner celebrating my one brother hitting the big 5-0. Cam is growing up fast!
That’s my five and now it’s your turn!
