Travel Theme – Off-centre

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is “Off-Centre” where the focus of your photo is not dead centre.  A general rule of  thumb for composing photos is to avoid dead centre when framing a subject. The “Rule of Thirds” is one of the general photography rules that will give you a fairly well composed photo most of the time. A lot of digital cameras even have the guidelines on the screen as an option you can turn on. Sometimes, of course, dead centre works very well. Rules are made to be broken. But in this post, here are some of my “off centre” photos from my travels.
