Beautiful Jacaranda in bloom with the white colonial house in the background.

The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image.
The Rule of Thirds is just a guideline, not a rule, and there will be times when it doesn’t work for you — when you want to minimize the background, or fill the frame with your subject. Give it a try in your everyday shooting, though, and see if it doesn’t add a bit more life to your images.
Thank you to my friend, Bryce for contributing those shots.

A random thought
came into my mind
as I looked out the window
seeing not much of a sunshine,
overcast, looking pretty gloomy
on a summer’s day.
Christmas is around the corner,
summertime is here,
yet the sun struggles to appear,
this summer taking a long time to shine.
What a blessing though,
a breeze of fresh air surrounds.
When the full season kicks in,
I do know for sure
compared to other places I had been
summer days here are mild,
No profuse sweating or discomfort,
time for jandals, BBQ and the outdoors.
The colours of Christmas,
red, green and white have nothing to do
with snow, robins and holly bushes.
Red is for pohutukawa in bloom,
green stands for lush tropical vegetation,
white represents vast, pale sandy beaches.
Still looking out the window,
filled with thoughts of appreciation
for the kind kiwi weather
where days are not too hot
and nights are not too cold,
what a comfortable place to be.
