The Weekly Photo Challenge is supposedly the Rule of Thirds but the presentation of the challenge is so completely different from what I have been taught and teach- I thought of adding the grid on some of these images to size them up. But decided to just go with what I see as broken up into thirds, or in some cases threes.
Confined myself to a NYC archive to simplify the selections. My gallery doesn’t fit the parameters of the suggested minimalist, off center subject and a blurry background.
Do you “think about size relationships when you look” at the photos?
Going to see what else I can come up with this week, specifically for the challenge.

Serenity - continued. Finding photos to go with this week’s theme has been satisfying. Thanks for looking at today’s gallery of images that feel peaceful in a variety of ways.
Eighteenth century figures. From my recent visit with my sister.
Merry Christmas 2014.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”
Yes, they said they threw us a curveball with the challenge for yellow right in the midst of silver and red and green holiday colors. No lemons available in the house.

I ordered a piece of New York Cheesecake when I visited my sister in NYC. With the fresh fruit on top. A generous amount that contrasted nicely with it.
There is no crust.
I thought it tasted really good and had a smooth texture, satisfying and rich but not too rich or sweet.
Mary said when she took a spoonful, it felt like she was biting into a block of cream cheese.
Her pastry looked delicious, filled with ricotta.
Here is the piece I ordered and ate, almost to the last bite.
Just wondering how you feel about cheesecake?
My sister-in-law Bobbie has a great recipe I have baked for parties over the years and guests devour it.
That is, if they like cheesecake.

One more gallery of New York City. I’ve been home a week.
By looking at the photographs, I’m still enjoying the time I had with my sister.
I was a tourist for sure!

“By covering surface of an object with transparent glass beads, the existence of the object itself is replaced by “a husk of light”, and the new vision “the cell of an image” (PixCell) is shown.” Kohei Nawa (artist based in Kyoto)
