This Weeks Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds


Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m always snapping a picture of something, anything, everything. I’ve never taken classes for photography…yet, it is just something that I’ve inherited from my grandfather who always had a camera on him.

This weeks photo challenge is about Rule of Thirds. As an amateur, I had no clue as to what that meant, until Jen H. described it in the Daily Post.

The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image.

That’s easy enough, though I find it harder to do with my mobile. It isn’t an expensive, flashy phone, but it does take some relatively good pictures.

Enjoy!

This picture is of a real dragonfly, I just have my cameras lens zoomed in as far as I could get it to zoom. I think I was about twenty feet away. This was the only clear shot I could take, all the others came out blurry.

The view from where I sit


Image

I have survived the first week of a new semester of college. Though I did have to take a nap as soon as I got home each day.

Today’s ‘View From Where I Sit’ is taken in the college library. I’m sitting in the magazine area, located in the far left corner as you walk in the door. I usually spend quite a bit of time in the library, in fact I’m in there every day. I find this little area by the magazines somewhat quieter. I’m wearing my favorite flip flops as you can see in the picture. It is a mere reminder that summer is over and school has begun. I’m taking five classes this semester, so I’m going to stay busy.

*Please note that I don’t sit with my feet on the furniture, it was just for the picture 😉

Manuscript still incomplete


My manuscript still sits on my desk at home, awaiting on me to finish editing its last few chapters. In the meantime I’ve been caught up in school, class work, studying, and preparing for Halloween festivities that I haven’t had the time I’ve wanted to finish my manuscript. The last chapter requires the most attention as I need to add here and there as I had rushed it just to finish it.

I open my wordpress and read other blogs to see how to better my novel and it reminds me once again of my manuscript. It’s like my conscience talking to me; something that constantly nags at me to do something until it’s done.

I’ve noticed that when school started I’ve had plenty of time to work on it, and I have. Adding over 10K words and then some. And now that school is about half way through the semester us students are found busier with more work and studying, preparing for our finals.

I have another month and a half until this semester ends, then I’ll have plenty of time to concentrate on my manuscipt.
