This week’s Photo Challenge is Rule of Thirds. This means having your main subject off center. In this photo, the bird is the main subject, and it’s orientation is reinforced by the line of the branch upon which it’s perched. The background is completely blurred, putting the emphasis where it belongs on the animal.
The week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is ‘Express Yourself. Now, that’s a hard one. How, among all the photos I’ve taken over the years, do I find one that expresses me or my ideas? I rifled through my archives, though, and came up with this. What do you think?
I can’t quit, though, without sharing a photo for the final assignment – Triumph. This dog gone bird, after chasing all the other birds away, shows triumph and bravado in every feather.
I’ve not been able to do all the assignments, but I’ve enjoyed the ones I did do. Been sitting here on Black Friday catching up on book reviews and outlining my new novel, but as i go into the weekend, when I’ll be totally focused on these two tasks, I’d like to share some photos I took on Thanksgiving Day near my daughter’s home in Woodbine, Maryland in neighboring Howard County – a mainly rural county.
