Centerpoint Collection

Cabbage Flower

Cabbage Flower

Sometimes it is better to break the rule of thirds and aim for center placement of photo subjects, as suggested by Cee for her Compose Yourself Challenge this week. This colorful, rounded, ornamental cabbage demanded to be center of attention!

I took my next photo on a recent trip to a park. It just seemed more balanced to place the stairway in the center of the frame. My eyes went straight up the steps, which seemed like a stairway to heaven from the bottom.

Next up is Bunny, one of The Backyard Bunch of critters I love to watch from my porch. Cropping the photo into a square shape put him right in the middle. His (her?) great big eye and long ears are the focal point of the picture. If you look close, you can see that he is nibbling on a piece of green grass that he has in his mouth!



Finally, I selected a photo of Winter Santa with his face at the center point. My eyes go straight to his eyes and then fan out to admire his beard and fancy Christmas coat.



Ho, Ho, Ho! Did any of you ask Santa for a new camera this year?

The Backyard Bunch-Rabbits

Watching and Listening

Watching and Listening

Introducing Sherman. Sherman is a large rabbit that I frequently see in the grasses of my back yard. He looks handsome resting in the clover.



Here is a cottontail view just before Sherman hops across the yard. I have learned that rabbits hop away from danger in a zig zag pattern. Sherman is in no danger in the peaceful haven of my yard.

I wonder if there is a hidden burrow. On other days, I have seen as many as three smaller rabbits hopping across the yard together.

Introducing Bunny. I was walking around my yard and almost didn’t see her. This smaller bunny sat very still as I approached. I didn’t want to frighten her so I stopped and zoomed in on her from some distance then backed away.

Seeing the smaller bunnies made me wonder if Sherman is actually a she. In any case, there does seem to be a rabbit family nestled nearby!
