Someone asked me why centered photos look good when rule of thirds mean so much. Well, that isn't a rule that things are only desirable with this naturally occurring golden ratio, it's just one way to look at composition. But then again, centered also doesn't mean it isn't adhering to the rule. This photo I took of @klodid has a centered subject but also has a ton of 1/3 things going on. 
Eyes right on the top third horizontal line, 2/3 of the wall on both sides, about 2/3 of body showing.

There's so much to making a photo, sometimes rules help, sometimes you bend them a bit. Sometimes you don't need them at all. Great things need a mix of science and emotion.

What do you think of the rule of thirds?

More work with shooting through wine glasses! It's really interesting to play with strange distortions and light refractions. Thanks to @emilywemilyw for the fun shoot. See my latest @priime collection with @emilywemilyw for more!

Lots of pit stops along the way home, because it looked like this.

This corner of @fithappyabs' beautiful home was too good not to photograph.

Falling snow from the tree above me created a beautiful, galaxy looking scene. 
I've been spending a couple hours in the mornings riding the mountains this winter. It's a good break from the usual gym workouts and gets me balanced out for a full rest of the day of work on @priime. It's quite a feeling sitting in a glade of trees, quiet, and taking in the breathtaking views. Getting back to work after a sweaty wintery gym session is exhilarating.

In the snow and clouds this morning. I love the winter. On powder days, in place of the gym I'll spend some time on the mountains before work.
