Photo Challenge: Lens-Artists – Frame the Shot

This week Amy has asked that we show how we frame a shot.  Framing is oh, so important since it leads the viewer’s eyes to the spot you want them to look.

Recently I visited family in Chattanooga, Tennessee and revisited some of the tourist sites I had not seen since I was a child.  These included The Incline, Rock City and Ruby Falls.  This time we also rode the Missionary Ridge Local train, inspected the Coke Ovens in Dunlap, Tennessee and visited the Chattanooga Zoo and the Tennessee Aquarium.


I had to wait quite a while until these little fishies would cooperate and swim to an open spot in the coral. 


The Tennessee Aquarium is one of the best that I have visited.  There are two buildings – one is devoted to ocean life and the other is limited to inland rivers.

Because of age and condition, the Walnut Street Bridge is now open to pedestrian traffic only.  It crosses the Tennessee River and has helped to revitalize the downtown area with shops, restaurants and residential buildings.  It was also the perfect spot to take sunrise and sunset photos.
