Many of my photos of the Grand Canyon attempt to show the immense size and depth of this geological wonder. The photos below, however, capture the half and half balance between rock and sky, or rock and trees. To be honest, I wasn’t thinking about this aspect of composition when I took the photos. The WordPress Half and Half photo challenge made me go looking for photos, and this is what I found:
Desert View Watchtower on the south rim of the Grand Canyon – this really is a half and half photo, isn’t it! Did you know that a woman, architect Mary Colter, designed this building? It was completed in 1932.
Desert View Watchtower – really more of a thirds photo with sky, rock and trees.
South rim of the Grand Canyon – the foreground is one half, and the background is the other.
South rim of the Grand Canyon – a diagonal half and half split.
When a man retires, his wife gets twice the husband but only half the income.
– Chi Chi Rodriguez –
When you hear the expression half and half, what do you think of?
