Photo Blogging #Challenge August 2015 theme: Rule of Thirds #photoblog


August’s theme for the photo blogging challenge hosted by http://hoohaablog.com was Rule of Thirds. I am not sure what “Rule of Thirds” was supposed to mean, so my pictures are really abstract in relation to the theme.

hard cider rules

I went to hear music at one of my favorite places- a creperie and craft beer locale called Natty’s. I ordered a flight with my uncle. Since he is a light weight when it comes to drinking alcoholic beverages, he drank one and I drank the other 3. I ordered their variety of their on tap hard ciders because I do not care for beer.

fancy fish

During the same visit with my uncle, we went to the Riverbanks zoo in Columbia SC (Fun fact: this zoo is top rated on Tripadvisor). I always enjoy visiting the aquarium and watching the fish. There is something very calming about watching fish swim around with not a care in the world. This picture was included because it looks to me like the fish has three fins.

Montague’s Blacken Salmon

No month is complete without a my requisite food picture. LOL 😀 Once again I went to Montague’s. I chose this picture because there are 3 components to this plate: blackened salmon, mashed potatoes, and root vegetables. Added bonus is that there are three types of root veggies: carrots, red and yellow beets. It was delicious! I love salmon but rarely order it. The mashed potatoes were true comfort food. The root veggies were healthy but tasty. I decided when this is the weekly feature again, I definitely will be ordering it.

reading for days

I am reaching as I explain “thirds” for this picture. This is a picture of my third e-reader. It is a Paperwhite Kindle. I used to use my Kindle Fire and my iPad as e-readers. I started to get headaches because of eye strain. After investigating, I decided to buy the Paperwhite. I am happy to say that my eyes and head do not hurt any more after I have been reading for long periods of time.

chocolate fountain

I went to a business mixer last week and they had a 3-tiered chocolate fountain. When I saw this, I thought it would be perfect to include in the topic of “Thirds”.

Check A ‘lil HooHaa blog tomorrow to see what the theme for September will be. Beginner, expert, and anywhere in between photographers welcomes to participate in the fun.

  1. Creative expansion of the theme to the subject matter, too. That fancy fish is pretty cool – and hard to photograph through glass without a bunch of irritating reflections. Good work!

  2. The rule isn’t a steadfast one, but definitely look it up sometime!

    I like that you interpreted it as you saw it, though. That’s how these themes should be! That chocolate fountain looks good!
