We frame what we see through our lens. And it tends to be a process, whether you use the golden ratio, the rule of thirds, or just aim for the right balance.

But what about how the world frames itself?

Note: Cheri wrote a wonderful post on natural frames that may help you get into the right “frame” of mind.

For example, this view began as a look into a cavernous room with a large tree growing indoors. Which is quite striking on its own. But then I noticed the framing of the brick opening. Which then expanded out to the front door’s oval hole. All of which came together to add more depth to an already interesting shot:

This week, I’d love for you to look at things a bit differently. Whether it’s through an actual picture frame, a few stalks of grass, or even the spokes of a bicycle tire, find an alternative frame to the world around you and share what you see!
