~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #60: Framing the Shot ~

Windows offer a challenging way to frame shots. Sometimes the results are lovely, as in the photo below.

Because many of my photos are taken in natural settings, I often frame with flora to add dimension.

Another challenging way to add interest, is to use natural and manmade frames.

Structures and walkways often provide lines that direct our eyes to the subject as in the photo below.

For this challenge I looked back through my archives to photos taken long ago, and stored on an older computer. Thank you Amy, for a prompt that took me into the “way back machine”!

    Very nice photos – I especially like the first window looking outside!

  2. Amy says:

    Fabulous selections, Lindy! Each has a beautiful and unique way to frame the scene. Love the first one, I feel like I was there looking out the window. Both natural and manmade are well used to frame the images. Thank you!

  3. A beautiful sequence Lindy, I especially love the view through the lighthouse window in the first image 🙂💖 xxx

    A varied and absolutely lovely gallery, Lindy! The first and the fifth one especially speaks to me. Vertical and horizontal – very alike but very unlike. The Fort Columbia is so soothingly beautiful.

    Great choices. That first one, the window, is superb.

    All lovely. I especially like the first one.

  7. Tina Schell says:

    All great examples Lindy but the opening window (pun intended) is outstanding

    Lovely looks at your framed memories, Lindy. Many wonderful moments. I’ll join the crowd with expressing my love of the lighthouse capture. 🙂

    Very nice series. I particularly like the industrial atmosphere in the last one.
