WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FRAME

Cheri wrote a wonderful post on natural frames that helped me get into the right “frame” of mind. She says a frame doesn’t have to be something thin or square.

Barcelona embraces art like no other city.  Here, a boy’s hands frame this froggy spout on the Font de la Granota (fountain of the frog) near Corsega street.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: NARROW

WP editor Ben H says there’s magic in the narrow, the way it forces the eye to focus on details and textures that get lost in a wide-open panorama.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CHERRY ON TOP

The cherry on top.

Or, as the straightforward folks at Oxford Dictionaries explain it, “a desirable feature perceived as the finishing touch to something that is already very good.”

Oodles of lessons and hours of practice and the drone of the metronome.

Ah, but that cherry.

Looking on: Patience and Fortitude, the famous stone lions named by Fiorello La Guardia.
