Photo a Week Challenge – Rule of Thirds

Nancy Merrill is hosting a photo challenge. The theme this week – Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds is a standard photographers use to frame their images. You divide the frame into a grid of three across and three down, and then don’t put your subject in the middle square. It’s also best if you can put the focus of your image on one of the grid lines.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) USING THE RULE OF THIRDS.

I look outside the second floor window of my condo.
And what do I see through the trees and power lines?
Cars & trucks speeding by – east and west – on a state highway.
A toddler would be mesmerized.
I am getting used to it.

I fondly remember looking out the dining room window of my former home…discovering Spring surprises that had seemingly sprouted overnight.  Peeking out amongst the rhododendrons…or along the side yard squeezing in between the ever-spreading irises.

There was never a good reason to pass on a photo opportunity….
