Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #60– Framing the Shot

Arches are one of my favorite framing devices, and Europe is full of them.  Here are two photos my husband took, one at Roman ruins in Italy and one in a Croatian Old Town.  It’s nice to show off his talent every now and then!

But in a more natural setting, who doesn’t like using foliage for framing?  I immediately thought of this photo I took on a hike along the coast on the Beara Peninsula in Co. Cork, Ireland.  I took pictures of this lighthouse from several angles with different framing devices; you can see more in my post for Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations on a Theme.


You can find more framed shots at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

    Beautiful arch photos captures by your husband. I, too, love to photo arches in Europe. The lighthouse is nicely framed by the tree. It looks like you have a wonderful time hiking at the Beara Peninsula. Thank you for sharing you framing the shot, Mei-Mei. 🙂

    Lovely frames – both natural and arches! Great that you promote your husband ♥ too. Your examples are very clear and accurate – and my favorite is…the hiking shot. The light in enhances the sea and the light house in a soft and compelling way.

      Thank you! He took all his photos in Europe just with his phone, and they were often better than mine with a cheap camera! Of course now I just use my phone, too. It’s amazing how much better the phone cameras have gotten over the years!

        They really have. Sometimes I prefer the photos taken with my phone over the DSLR shots. But having your camera with you all the time is smart.
