A Photo a Week Challenge: Dead Center

IMG_1021Most of the time, photographers are told to frame their subject or subjects using the rule of thirds. However, like most rules, there are times when you need to break it.DSC06441

For this image, the structure in this image shows the vastness of the ocean, the eye does not mind that the structure is in the middle of it.

Photography 101: Water

“A source of life. A place of recreation. A calming presence, but also a destructive force.

We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it might also symbolize a place we’ve left behind, or a location we dream to go.”

I love the ocean!

I’ve had my WHITE washing machine for just over 13 years, which I think is quite a reasonable time for an electronic device!

It started to give us some problems over the last few weeks but since last week it just got worse!

This morning I did the first batch of washing and all went smoothly! I had the washing on the line in no time! The second batch was another story! It was letting water in, but at the same time it was letting it out!

We tried all the tricks of the trade to get it working, but it decided: that was it! I suppose that means: it’s time to buy a new one!
