Trios, Triplet, Thirds – Photos of Three Things

Trio, triple, thirds say three.
As do triad, ternion and  trilogy,
Triptych, trine and trichotomy,
Triangle, treble and trinity.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is Trio.  I had no problem finding photos to fit, as I often compose a shot to include three elements.

The idea of the number ‘3’ is also an important part of a photograph’s composition. The Rule of Thirds is perhaps not instinctive, nor obvious, yet it can make a dramatic difference in a photograph. Of course, rules are often broken. I was thinking Rule of Thirds when I cropped the following photos, but wasn’t that successful!

  1. We love going to Carefree, which is a little over a half hour drive from our house, and we always enjoy seeing Ho Hum Road, where Ho and Hum roads converge.
    My daughter thinks it would be amusing to own a shop on Ho Road.
    I sometimes wonder about that girl.
