Rule of Thirds: Weekly Photo Challenge

DSCF2386This week’s challenge is the Rule of Thirds, where the subject should be off centre, resulting in a blurred or blank space on the rest of the photograph.    This almond blossom, captured in the Jalon Valley, Spain, could have been slighty more focused, I think.

IMG_0503This attempt at a ‘thirds’ photo has been helped by the gathering dusk on the left of the picture.  Taken from our barge at the Aramon mooring on the Rhone, with the boat behind silhouetted against the skyline.

IMG_0863And this final attempt at ‘thirds’ was a huge push-tow looming out of the mist as we waited above Chateaneuf Lock on the Rhone for the fog to clear.  So glad we stayed put!

A difficult topic this week on the Weekly Photo Challenge; I might have to try this one again sometime, as dusk and fog provided the required out-of-focus element on two of these.   Click on the link to see others.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
