Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

For me, the problem with the ‘Rule of Thirds’ is that you have to take the photo with that in mind.

At times I have thought about playing with the rule of thirds but so far not a single photo of mine (out of thousands) qualifies. Hence, I have had to dig through my husband’s photos to find some to crop using the ‘Rule of Thirds’, as he seems to be a little more rule abiding than I am….

I’m not sure exactly what crop would show that off, more on the bottom, maybe?13MMBaganThatbyinnyuPhayaF7769wcrop I think this photo actually needs more water in front of them to qualify.
