The Rule of Thirds is something my husband and daughter spoke of after taking a photography course together. I wrongly assumed it just meant dividing a photo into thirds. I never realized it meant to visualize four lines dividing the photo into 9 squares, then positioning the focal point near a point of intersection.
On the way to a wedding, Guy (my hubby) was walking with me at a brisk pace along the city’s waterfront. Glancing at him, I noticed an enormous Canadian flag flapping in the wind. Stopping suddenly in my tracks, I said, “Guy, wait a sec. I want to take your pic!” Being married to me for 36 years so far, he’s always been a very good sport about interruptions for photo-ops.
