That’s rule number one for a photographer, isn’t it? Fill your frame?
― David Cronenberg,
Yes, David. It is the number one rule in photography. Fill your frame.
Don’t be shy about it.
And enjoy the results.
It’s been a crazy month, full of unexpected trips, and a sad farewell to Henry, our dear friend who has meant so much to our family. Needless to say, this wasn’t the time for sightseeing and carrying around my DSLR, so I caught a few quick shots here and there with my smartphone as you can see in the 3 shots posted here.
But this week’s theme also resonates on a personal level. Our dear friend, Henry, approached life with a smile and open arms. That was how he ‘framed’ life. Other people ‘frame’ it with arms crossed defensively or with eyes narrowed in suspicion. Henry reminds us to face life with courage, honesty, a ready smile, and the certainty that there is good in all of us.
That’s my hope for us too as we face the future.
