Rule of Thirds Motion
If you didn’t know, there is a rule of composition that is often applied in photography: the rule of thirds. Basically, you cut the picture in 1/3 on each axis and place your subject on the intersection of these lines. We can use this to show motion in pictures, like I have for this week’s chalenge.
If you didn’t know already, I like discarded stuff... This one is a study of our society. So here you have it: my contribution for this week, taking a different angle on the subject matter, along with an extra dose of discarded - Straw I, II and the T-Bag. Personally, I like the golden ratio better when it comes to composition, but it depends on the picture. Rules are meant to be broken.
These unused plastic straws had been tossed in the back alley - not even the trash. They point toward passers by and a manhole, while in the back, there sits an all-you-can-eat restaurant. In some ways, this represents us as a society; blind to the consequences of our actions on our world. If you ask me, I think that a bigger problem is that we let corporations hide the truth of our actions to us when we use the good and services that they offer.
