Photo Challenge No.2. - June 5-11 - frame your images

I had a lot of fun this week! I probably would have only had a couple of entries except for our trip to the gardens this past weekend. So bare with me and a BIG THANK YOU to Wen for a great fun challenge - I was seeing things "framed" everywhere. Of course Den now tells me he does not like my current fetish of taking photos on an angle *sigh* oh well ..... let's hope it passes soon LOL! My fetish or his dislike - whichever comes first!
This is one of my faves. The lavendar fields were just gorgeous and this is from the balcony.

Here is my fave spot ...... SO peaceful!

Getting a bit fancy here. This was my first effort. I looked at Den and my tea mugs and how they "framed" the candle. I was excited about this as I got my tripod out and really took my time and "think" I got the lighting just right.
My second effort - when I thought I would be struggling to get one shot. I thought this window would make a good frame and was playing away when Hugh walked in to ask me a question ..... poor child! He regretted that move when he had to stand there for the next five minutes LOL!
I really liked this one too .... if you cannot already tell I am a big lavender fan.
OH NO (says Den) the angle thingy again. Hehehe.
Last but not least this fountain through the rotunda!
Thanks for looking!

Some beautiful shots Helen. I love the candle one... in fact I love them all. I personally love the "angle thing". Tell Den it's "dynamic framing"! The maze from the balcony's a great example of this. Keep up the good work!

BTW, I love the angles...what does he know, anyway? Then there's Brett, who thinks everything in a shot should be smack dab in the center- I always off-center them...it drives him crazy!!!

Again, what do they know? LOL!!!!

Celeste said...

WOW, Helen, these are INCREDIBLE! And yes, I have a thing for lavender as well, so I can't help but love it the best! At our wedding reception, we put a couple of sprigs of lavender at each place setting. It was so nice to see people holding them and smelling them throughout the night. Ah, memories...!
