A Frame Is A Container For Ideas

2 Comments

The Daily Prompt doesnt grab me today, so I’ll have another go at the Weekly Challenge….. containers.  

A frame is just a container for ideas. When we line up a photo we’re creating a container for the image we have in mind.

The idea of ‘borrowed scenery’ is often used in Japanese gardens. It’s skillful framing. Even a small garden can contain a grand vista. It can be bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

I couldnt find a suitable photo from Japan. The great Sengan-En garden in Kagoshima brilliant frames Sakura, an active volcano. I cant think of a more dramatic sight. Sadly, when I was there the day was overcast. I got the frame, but not the vision inside. I will go back one day.

This is from Les Jardins de Marqueyssac  in the Dordogne, France.  The designer has captured one of the other great fortresses that dominate the valley. I think it’s Castelnaud.

  1. Yes. Place of history itself. “Timeline” by Michael Crichton – our favourite book, Stringer’s and mine. Did you get this from BurtPhysicsOnline ? – he has some WONDERFUL French photos …

  2. The shot’s one of mine from a jaunt to Sarlat. Checked out the BurtPhysicsOnline site…. some great shots of that area. One of them very familiar indeed! We’ve both borrowed the borrowed scenery….
