This week's Photohunt theme is three. Three is one of those magical numbers when composing a photograph. Composition comes natural to my husband. He has artistic genes. But I struggle.
Besides the rule of thirds, he has taught me to try to look for three items when you compose a picture. It really does work but it doesn't make it any easier for me to see it.
I visited the Ballard Locks for a previous Photohunt and decided to practice my composition using the idea of three. There is a wonderful sculpture on the Magnolia side of the locks called "Salmon Wave". The artist is Paul Sorey. These metallic waves shapes are to represent various sea motifs - sea shells, octopus, whale fins or even sea monsters. They are also lit at night which sounds really cool but I've never seen it at night.
