Weekly Photo Challenge: Edgy September 9, 2016 by scillagrace Ben Huberman talks about using a frame to “anchor” our compositions with something. Here’s my son holding down the Chicago skyline: But he seems to be bobbing in the water. What if I anchor him as well? Maybe that’s a bit unfair to put that on my kid’s shoulders. He’s not even as tall as I am. How about I anchor the skyline with some serious construction? Like Lake Shore Drive… I like that. And the monochrome treatment makes it even stronger. Thanks, Ben, for the tip! Edge Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
Amusing and good ideas!
Fun. We both went with Chicago today. 🙂
The John Hancock, right? I had Mother’s Day brunch on the 95th floor one year.
I’m ashamed to say I don’t know what the building is. I only saw the reflections. 🙂
I was thinking of the great big Xs on the John Hancock, but I guess all the big skyscrapers have those.
Lovely portrait of your son, Scillagrace, and the black and white is well “anchored” 🙂
Thanks, Jane. I do like photographing my kids, even now when they’re all grown up!
What a lovely smiley young man! The b & w works really well. Note to self…. add Chicago to travel bucket list! 🙂
My favorite thing about Chicago (besides my kids who live there!): The Lyric Opera!!!! World class. Used to be a subscriber, now I just hope to get to single operas when I can afford it.
