Light of Inspiration

Today I am going to combine two weekly challenges in this one post.

For Sylvain’s Weekly Challenge this week, its the lights
And Daily Post’s Weekly Challenge for this week is Inspiration.

I am going to go with a Lighthouse today. I did a set of posts on the various Lighthouses I have been to. I always find Lighthouses a source of inspiration. A Beacon of Hope. I just love them. 1-IMG_9239

β€œIf lighthouse becomes a burning candle,
flickered upon ocean’s insanity.
Your sailing heart there anchors to handle
the obsessed breeze towards sand dune’s vanity.”
― Munia Khan

As of this photograph is concerned, it was taken at Point Cabrillo Lighthouse. I did not want the rule of the thirds to be followed here. I wanted the subject to the right in the center. And had to wait for the exact time the light came in my direction to capture that moment of brightness. Am not sure how I can explain the reason as to why, but this is how I wanted this picture to look like and am glad it came out as I wanted. Hope you like it too.

I could do with a lot of hope and some inspiration today. Have a great day ahead.

    Rules are meant to be broken. Nicely timed. The symmetry works well here.

    The rule of thirds is just one way to create a photograph. If you had used that rule, in my opinion, the lighthouse would have looked off-kilter unless there was something to balance it. Technically, you did obey the rule of thirds, being wholly and completely in the middle third. πŸ™‚

    When creating a photograph, go with your gut/intuition. Photographs are about the photographer, not rules. Rules are just suggestions, something to springboard from, a starting place. Following rules too closely can stifle one’s creativity.

    You did good. πŸ™‚ Keep going with your gut/intuition. You’ll do fine.
