SundayStills - rule of thirds

There is no story to go with these photos this time except that maybe, just maybe (after hours of culling my photo files) these are the two subjects I have the most photos of that may be deemed a little superfluous

a view from my balcony

and some ducks


and more baby ducks

How long does duckling season last anyway? These guys were spotted last Wednesday and you'd think I'd never seen ducks before the way I was snapping away! Then again, they have a way of moving very quickly which made it rather easy to follow the rule of thirds as they furiously paddled their way out of frame, but difficult to get them in focus or exposed properly.
See how others followed the rule of thirds in this week's photo challenge at Sunday Stills

  5. Beautiful silvery sky. Loved that.
    The ducks are a challenge trying to get them into the frame in a suitable picture and you seem to have managed that very well.

  6. Baby critters are fascinating. They reaffirm the continuity of life.

  8. The first picture is the same sky that I saw at dawn today. Blindingly silvery.
    What's not to love about ducklings, with their bright sparkly eyes and their ridiculously cute little heads!

  10. I think you like to take pictures of ducks for the same reasons I like to take pictures of Barney: Because they are your pets.

  11. thanks, everyone!

    the best part about the ducks is that when they grew up they are still cute and lovable unlike the geese and swans who can turn downright ornery.
