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.
Thanks for running with your own point of view – lovely photos and a sense of humor!
Yup skip the Bokeh, I will take the Durian anytime!
I LOVE NewYork …….. each third of it!!! 🙂
Nice choices, Ruth. I couldn’t do the minimalist, off center, blurry either. 🙂
Whatever rules you use, you always present terrific galleries, Ruth, and this is no exception. 🙂 I did love that shot in the challenge! Quite ethereal. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
Your take on rule of thirds will inspire me to think about it when I next take a photo.
Who needs rules when you have intuition!
Hear, hear! lol 🙂

Some nice people shots there 🙂 I think the Rule of Thirds really applies to still life / stationary subjects anyway – and like all rules, it’s there to be broken!
Enjoyed the gallery anyway. 🙂
I’m with Janet…fun gallery full of NYC life – what could be bad about that?!
But …. but, I like bokeh. 😛
Your NYC picks are always so great! \
Nice job Ruth E – that wasn’t easy.
A very interesting collection of images here.
