Photohunters: Framed

I knew when I saw that the photohunters theme was framed that I would use photographs which have an interior subject which is framed by an architectural or natural border.

I often shoot through the side rails of foot bridges so that the creek is framed by the bridge.

The clouds, building, and old water tower (right bottom of the shot), are framed by the open entrance way to a courtyard area.

Many of my bird shots, like the one of the brown creeper above, are framed by the windows on my french door. The smokestack below is framed by the window and blinds.

I often shoot sunsets through my bedroom window and end up with a slightly off kilter framed look. I gave up on trying to find any perfectly framed examples of this technique of shooting through a existing frame. Usually if I concentrate on getting the frame straight the shot inside of it isn't optimal and if I focus on the interior shot the frame is askew.

Wow Carver, these are some awesome shots of frames you created yourself. I like off kilter frames like that last one, and the creek shot through the footbridge is such a beautiful photo.

Hope you have a great weekend.

Hmmm, I like this idea of framing things with the own components of the picture, you've presented a great collection here!
God bless you!

Wow, what a brilliant post with all the "framed" pictures! I shoot pictures through bridges also and didn't even think of it today until I saw yours!

I wish I am that bird in the summer time. You are very creative in the frames.

I had a lot of spams too on one of my three sites. Then I put on the verification last night. There wasn't any today. may be it worked.

Are you with blogspot, try that.
