Half and Half – Weekly Photo Challenge

DSC_0281Half-and-Half:  This was an interesting challenge and not that easy either.  I realised that instinctively I compose my photos into thirds – foreground, object and distance, or right, left and above.  This photograph of Cape Town has been cropped to form a half-and-half study

dscn4396A slightly different ‘half-and-half’, this time the two halves being formed by the object and its reflection.  This is the River Saone, taken in flood.

DSCN1935Tricky ‘half-and-half’ here.  🙂  On the right is a seal lying on its front.  On the left is a seal facing the opposite way, and lying upside down.  This was taken on the Waterfront in Cape Town.

DSCN3624-001And here the half-and-half is a diagonal division between light and shade.  This is Guetin lock on the Lateral a la Loire.  It’s one of the deepest on that stretch of waterway; be sure your ropes are long enough if you’re planning on passing through this one!

To see other ‘half and half’ interpretations, (and I think they’re going to be very diverse) click on the Weekly Photo Challenge.

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.

    The reflection of the tree in the calm floodwaters looks serene. Beautiful.

    The seals are adorable, but the first photo of the town at night with the moon is striking.


  6. I like your interpretations….I’d not considered reflections.

    The two seals are so cute!

    These are great – I love the seals!


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