CBBH Photo Challenge – Framed

Marianne’s challenge topic this month is framed. I’m rather late in throwing together my contribution but as they say in the classics… rather late than never. But before I get into the photos let me first give you a small bit of background. Marianne posts the challenge early in the month and asks a few simple things… basically we must place the link back to her blog and name 2 bloggers on whose blogs we have commented in the last month or so.

The Poolbeg chimneys, Dublin, IrelandOK… that’s my first framing… but, to see Marianne’s post this month please click here. My first shot is of the Poolbeg stacks as seen from Grand Canal Dock Theater… sorry, I know it’s now called the Bord Gáis Energy Theater.

What's in the frame?Next up, a view across the Liffey… there’s quite a bit of framing going on here. The out of focus bicycle frame being framed by the railings… the steeple across the river and all the other boxes and outlines. Look closely, you’ll see all sorts of frames!

What’s the old story about missing the obvious? What do they say? Turn around, the best photo may well be hiding behind your back. So I did turn around, not intentionally, merely by chance… there you have it, the tip of the Samuel Beckett bridge reflecting rather nicely off the glass panes…

Framed reflections... the tip of the Samuel Beckett Bridge, Dublin, IrelandSo onto this month’s choice. Whom should I frame? Or should that be who should I place in the frame? I believe this lady may well be suited to gracing a canvas… gilded frame springs to mind. Mrs Carmichael is currently gallivanting down in the Land of the Long White Cloud… and suffering heat exhaustion by the looks of things!

Then… onto a totally different planet… well, almost. How about asking Amos of Rolbos fame to place the Kalahari in the frame for us. For those of you who’ve not met the characters of Rolbos you’re missing something more than special!

    Welcome to this month´s CBBH Photo Challenge – and I hope your back isn´t hurting too much at the moment, AJ 🙂

    I love your complicated centre framed shot – what a busy image that is (from a framing point of view). Well done that man! I´m so glad you turned around to capture the Samuel Beckett bridge reflecting in the window panes – wonderful!

    Thanks for the introduction to two blogs you enjoy. I´m off there – right now!

    A very inspiring post here, thanks! I`m with you on the Bord Gais Energy Theatre renaming. I`m sticking with the old name too. So much more in keeping with the grandeur of that building.

      It is the Grand Canal Plaze… is it not? 😉 Next they’ll want to call it the ESB Canal? 😛

  3. I like the reflection of the bridge on the window frame – like you say, it’s all about looking around you.

    I like those chimney stacks, I bet you can see them from miles around in all directions. Imagine how many different photos you could put them in. 🙂

      You know, you may have given me an idea there… thanks. I’ll dig out some pics to put together a gallery… as if I need any excuses to do galleries!! 😉
