To Grid or not To Grid

To picture a grid is a challenge but to use a grid to picture?

Rule of thirds, Fibonacci, the architectural rule of 27.8, etc. etc. I all have them in the back of my head somewhere when on a shooting mission. Composition is all in the eye. This is my second submission of this week’s challenge. This first one you can find here (with a grid).

Blame my handicap

I always like to play with subjects of the Weekly Photo Challenge. This time it is ‘Symmetry’.

Symmetry is mathematical and rarely in all perfectionism seen in nature. And most photographs of symmetrical subjects are boring to look at but yet when photographing there are some maths involved such as the rule of thirds or, for the more advanced photographer, the 2.78 (or equivalent thereof) rule architects use or the centuries old  lessons of Fibonacci, to name a few. Foremost is the EYE that sees (or not) and in the processing phase the more accurate mathematical calculations can come in (cropping, etc.). But you have to SEE it when shooting.

I’m Alpha not Bêta so I photograph with a handicap. If these pictures are not symmetrical enough to your liking; don’t blame me, blame my handicap 😉
