Week 13 ~ Rock, Water & Trees

Ok, so this week's theme was Trees ... but wanted a something a little different.  But of course, that took a bit to decide what that "a Little Different" was going to be.

Photography takes an
instant in time,
altering life
by holding it still.

Week 12 ~ Rule of Thirds

Definition of the Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds is applied by aligning a subject with the guide lines and their intersection points, placing the horizon on the top or bottom line, or allowing linear features in the image to flow from section to section.

Week 9 ~ Calgary Public Art

Family of Horses, in Municipal Plaza

This family of life-sized horses has been grazing at Municipal Plaza (City Hall) since 1989. The bronze artwork by Calgary-area artist Harry O'Hanlon was the result of a civic competition. It was paid for by Marg Southern, the president and co-chairman of Spruce Meadows, Calgary's world-class equestrian centre.

"A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves — strong, powerful, beautiful — and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
