This week, Amy directs us to explore different ways of framing images. She reminds us that, “Many photographers agree on one thing about framing – that it can help direct the viewers‘ eyes to where you want them to look.”

“Your frame of reference is what you see.” – Jacque Fresco

“Thoughts frame your portrait, action paints it.” – Charles F. Glassman

“The frame through which I viewed the world changed too, over time. Greater than scene, I came to see, is situation. Greater than situation is implication. Greater than all of these is a single, entire human being, who will never be confined in any frame.” – Eudora Welty

“The human frame being what it is, heart, body and brain all mixed together, and not contained in separate compartments as they will be no doubt in another million years.” – Virginia Woolf

“Frame your mind to mirth and merriment which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life.” – William Shakespeare
The theme for Lens-Artist Photo Challenge from Amy this week is: Architecture. During our travel, we have seen amazing architecture.
The Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival Palace on a rugged hill top above the village of Hohenschwangau with an elevation of 800 m (2,620 ft) in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The fairytale castle was commissioned by King Ludwig II as a retreat and a homage to the king’s favorite composer Richard Wagner.
Walt Disney was so inspired by the fairytale architecture of Neuschwanstein that he used it to create Cinderella’s castle in the 1950 animated film, and the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland. Wikipedia My travel post is here.
This week the theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Reflection, from Patti Moed.
The photos I selected for this post are reflections of water I admired during different trips near and far.
This is Puente de Alcántara Bridge over the calm river, Toledo Spain.
Anne-Christine has a great theme for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Blending in or Standing out.
We went to China for a eight-member family vacation. We had our private van with a private driver. The itinerary included Beijing, Xi’an, Guilin and Hong Kong. The first city tour was Beijing. Great Wall is surely standing out with the length of 13,170 miles (21,196 kilometers). It can be seen from outer space and the moon.
