Well I finally got out to shoot some pics for this challenge. Went to the SF Conservatory of Flowers this week, not much in bloom, but did get a couple of shots that I think incorporate the rule of thirds. Comments critiques always welcome. Thanks for looking.

Home Again and Cold
Dear Friends, Wim and I are home again - not even a week and we are having another snow storm. The trip across to Arizona and back was wonderful. We traveled HWY 10 from Tucson, AZ to Arkansa, and I never realized that Texas has so many different types of landscape. We loved SanAntonio - the Alamo and The River Walk. We also loved the saguaro cacti in the Tucson area. We made many interesting day trips in the Phoenix area, and also experienced the swap meet on two different occasions. I just picked a few random shots to show you today. Hope that you enjoy them. Oh, I broke my new camera in a fall while taking a picture - thae camera can be fix and my pride is healed. My skinned knee and hand are healing also.
Yes, a barn! Multiple panoramas of a *ruined* barn, to be precise; hence the title.
I've decided to enter these in the rule of thirds challenge as I was trying to use that rule at the time - but then I try to most of the time. XD
We've had some crazy delicious sunsets as of late and I've been able to go out and capture them in some fields near where I live. Woot!
Any particular favourites of the three? It would be nice to know. XD Thanks for looking!

Been learning to use Capture NX2 - anyone else using this photo editor?
For the birds
Another entry for the rule of thirds challenge.
I got a chance this weekend to take a few shots a small park and got a few that I liked.
The chase was so much fun to watch.
I'm not sure if the two shots in flight were of the same bird or different ones because they were all sailing and swooping. I like 1 better than 2 but I'm not quite sure why... maybe it's the way the light and shadow play on the wings. (1/1250s at f/5.6 with a focal length of 200mm)
shootin' for the moon
Well, I was out the other night walking Bobbi Sox and hoping to see a train zip by.
We had a really awesome moon that night...the kind for the Canon Rebel folks...all I got is a P&S (though I do like it, too.)
I know, they are a bit boring...but heck my other was to howl...I'm not sure that would've been well received!
I think a couple of them fit the challedge, too. *smiles**hugs*...peace
Rule Of Thirds
So. The rule of thirds, eh? I've been away a long time... six months, actually. We're doing a HUGE remodel project and this week is the first chance I've really had to do much in the way of photography. A few fit this challenge, so here you go.
This is what I see if I haul myself out of bed at 6:30 AM. Our
construction zone house is in a beautiful location.
And, because the eye is at almost exactly the 2/3 mark, I'm including this shot of my dad's bird.
Does this qualify for the Challenge? I think it does but not sure anyone else will agree :-).
Have a great evening and a Happy V-Day weekend!
Thirds Challenge and some quickies before breakfast.!
I picked up Jaryd one day last week but he was feeling puny and didn't want to ride around he just wanted to go to poppa's house and watch Tom & Jerry! By the time we got close to home the sun was up so I took the scenic route to sneak in some shooting... but I felt guilty cause he didn't feel well so I ended up just shooting out the window of the truck. So, these were all shot quick and dirty!
Peek-a-boo with the sun!
Catchin' some rays He looked like he was waiting for the sun to get up.
Headshot Blow up of the above.
I'll have thirds This was our breakfast and it was really a quickie set-up cause I didn't want the pancakes to get cold. It suffers for it but does demonstrate the rule of thirds.
These aren't my best but you know what they say... If you can't shoot the ones you love then love the ones you shoot!
