Hello everyone, I hope you are having a lovely spring day. With the blossoms popping like popcorn, I just feel so blessed to be able to enjoy it all! 

This week’s challenge is using the rule of thirds (see Nancy Merrill Photography). The rule of thirds is a photography principle where you compose the visual image on the intersecting lines of the grid as shown:

I have to admit, I don’t use the principle all that much as I love front and center photographs. I do try to follow the rule and divide my landscape horizons by the thirds though.

Here are my two, I hope you like them!

Let me know if you participate in this challenge, I’d love to see your photos!

Also if you are interested in purchasing a print/other products featuring either of these two photographs, check out my shop at Redbubble.

And they are having a sticker sale right now!
