Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: Week #9 Rule of Thirds Introduction

This week’s CCY Theme is Rule of Thirds Introduction.


Any experienced photographer will tell you that the Rule o Thirds is perhaps the most essential of rules, but they probably can’t tell you WHY it works. The truth is that we don’t know, but it just does. We don’t know enough about the brain and how it works to answer the why of it.

People are going up but the field on the right, lower level adds something to the picture.


Some time ago we had been going to the temple and as we turned, we stopped to take a photo of this water tank.


The hoarding looks much bigger than it is 🙂


The chimney of an old tile factory and the fronds of the coconut tree.


The length and breadth of the road and the height of the building.


Sunlight reflected on the water


Cee's compose-yourself challenge

By Lakshmi Bhat

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle.
We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating.
I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too.
Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I am doing something in my own way. Twice a week I go to a home for the mentally challenged . This has enriched my life.
There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

I enjoy the placement of the signs, in the lefthand third. I just realized looking at these that I probably would have taken the signs head-on, but the way you did it is much more effective. The sign itself is only part of these photos, being in place in a scenery shot. Thanks for this tip! Congratulations…these photos are great. 🙂
