52 Project – Rule of Thirds

Our week 33 task for 52 Project was to capture the rule of thirds. Wikipedia describes the rule of thirds as, ‘a guideline that proposes an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.’

This is a rule that is used frequently by photographers as it generally makes photos more visually interesting. Since I was traveling from Nashville to Pittsburgh to Erie and back this week I skipped the usual dogs and cats to photograph Ring-billed Gulls at Presque Isle on Lake Erie and pretty butterflies.
